Today, the economy of Kazakhstan is the largest economy in Central Asia. Republic of Kazakhstan has a huge amount of all kinds of natural resources such as oil, gas and mineral commodities, with arable land to use, professional labor and potential for large industrial progress. The rich natural resources, social and political stability in the country makes this region one of the most attractive area for foreign capital investments among the republics of the former Soviet Union.
Kazakhstan’s economy in the globalized world.
Globalization can be called a leading trend in the modern world’s economy because it is observed even in those countries where the rest of the modern trends of the world’s economy are weak. After the collapse of the Soviet Union, Kazakhstan became the last republic which declares their independence on 16th of December 1991.
Despite the economic and political difficulties of country faced earlier Kazakhstan had to adopt with the international environment by building diplomatic relations with other international entities, making the engagement in conversation with international organizations and by creating opportunity for socio-economic and domestic policy reforms. The development of Kazakhstan’s economy can be considered into three stages of economic growth.

In 1993, the average monthly rate of inflation was 30.1%, the decline in real GDP - 9.2%. Under these conditions, the Government and National Bank have identified as priorities for the gradual reduction of inflation and at the same time curbing the decline in production. In 1995, Kazakhstan's economy was getting out from the economic recession and there was a significant decline in inflation achieved by using the tools of monetary policy. The measures taken to curb hyperinflation: inflation fell from 2265% in 1993 to 60% in 1995. In the mid-1990s, Kazakhstan launched plans to reform the economy such as “Kazakhstan 2030. Prosperity, security and improvement of welfare of the citizens of Kazakhstan”. The prospects of Economic...
