The Ministry of Industry and Infrastructure Development of the Republic of Kazakhstan has mandated domestic raw material producers to supply the necessary volumes of products to enterprises in the processing industry. This decision comes in response to the ongoing challenge of raw material shortages faced by Kazakh metallurgists, primarily due to exports. On average, around 87% of primary metals were shipped to other countries, exacerbating the deficit domestically. It is expected that the amendments introduced in May will alleviate this issue, ensuring that domestic industrial enterprises are adequately supplied with raw materials. Additionally, these measures aim to replenish the domestic market with finished products and enhance Kazakhstan’s export potential. By 2029, Kazakhstan intends to increase lead and aluminum processing by four and five times respectively, while copper processing is projected to increase thirteenfold by that time.
