Kazakhstan Infrastructure Report Q1 2015

BMI View: The Kazakh infrastructure sector is facing some challenges stemming from sluggish economicgrowth due to falling oil revenues, a weakened Russian rouble and a devaluated tenge that will haveparticularly severe implications for the residential and non-residential sub-sector. Nonetheless, thepreparation for the 2017 World Expo and associated governmental funding programmes are boostinginvestment, especially in the transport sub-sector, while the energy sub-sector continues to profit from thecountries growing natural resource base, however slightly impeded through decreasing oil prices.

Key Trends And Developments

Ongoing external developments associated with decreasing oil prices, the economic crisis and a fallingRussian rouble due to the Western sanction regimes could force the Kazakh central bank to furtherdevaluate the currency in the near future. We already highlighted the downside to our constructionindustry forecasts from the February 2014 currency devaluation. While the devaluation provided a boostto net exports, it had adverse effects on private consumption levels. As such, demand for housing,commercial and industrial construction is set to remain subdued over the short term.
