More than 200 projects (out of 770) of the Industrialization Map in Kazakhstan had difficulty in capacity till the temporary suspension in early 2015 taking into account external shocks (devaluation of the ruble, the sanctions against Russia and so on), the Ministry of Investment and Development of Kazakhstan said.
Some 147 of these projects were launched during the reporting period (the work at the remaining enterprises is underway together with the regional authorities) in the reporting period.
However, the projects of the Industrialization Map were more resilient to external shocks compared to the industry as a whole, the report said.
