Active reforms underway across all spheres in Kazakhstan, experts say

Kazakhstan has entered an era of fundamental changes. Throughout the year, the country’s citizens have been feeling the impact of real reforms resulting from the implementation of Kazakh President Kassym-Jomart Tokayev's election program. This includes social and political transformation, along with systematic changes in the economy and the social sphere. According to political analysts, citizens are primarily witnessing an increase in the minimum wage, extension of the duration of social benefits related to childcare, implementation of the National Fund for Children program, economic de-monopolization, and the return of illegally acquired and withdrawn assets to the state. Additionally, a comprehensive democratic transformation of Kazakhstan’s entire political system is taking place at an accelerated pace, according to analysts.

“Kazakhstan consistently continues the implementation of a multi-vector foreign policy with an emphasis on preserving and advocating for national interests. Most Kazakh citizens clearly feel that a period of significant changes is currently underway. In politics, this entails a continuation of political modernization, including through the election of district governors. In the economy, it is generally a continuation of the processes aimed at de-monopolization, asset return, measures related to the redistribution of national wealth, and support for the social sphere,” said Arman Toktushakov, expert at the Institute of World Economics and Politics.
