Subsoil development as a driver of economic growth in Kazakhstan

The main goal of developing the National Priority should be to give a fresh, modern and powerful impetus to the development of the mining and metallurgical complex as a new "old" driver of the country's economic growth for the coming years and decades.

In addition, the integrated approach we propose, if our proposal is accepted, will help, in our opinion, to balance the relevant efforts for the interaction of industry business with responsible CSOs.

We believe that all this will become the most important factor in increasing investment attractiveness, a significant influx of investments into the subsoil use industry (hard minerals and mining), will lead to GDP growth both in the industry and in the entire economy of Kazakhstan.

Long-term targets for the new National Priority could be financial revenues in relevant industries.

In terms of solid minerals (solid minerals and mining and metallurgical minerals), these are revenues:

- in the mining industry; And

- in the metallurgical industry.

At the same time, the strategic target indicator (KPI) of the Government could be the permanent presence of Kazakhstan in the 9 countries of the world according to the indicated indicators (benchmarks).

This would fully correspond to the great potential of our country with its vast territory and significant, but not fully realized wealth of its mineral resources, in the interests of all the people of Kazakhstan.
