The domestic market for mechanical engineering is provided by 13% of Kazakhstani production

Astana. May 24. KazTAG - The domestic market for mechanical engineering is provided by Kazakh production by only 13%, - said Senate deputy Sagyndyk Lukpanov.

“The main share of mechanical engineering is occupied by simple assembly production with a minimal level of localization, and plans to increase localization have not been approved for large enterprises that receive significant government support measures.  The share of small-unit assembly in automobile production today is 10%,” - Lukpanov said at a Senate hearing on the development of the manufacturing sector of the Kazakh economy on Friday.  

According to him, the volume of imports of raw materials and components for the manufacturing industry is 50% or more. Raw materials are exported from the country, and value-added goods are imported.
