Kazakhstan - Current Account

Economic activity likely remained stunted in the second quarter, on the heels of a deceleration in the first quarter. In May, the short-term economic activity indicator weakened for a second consecutive month, amid a drop in industrial production—brought upon by a slowdown in the manufacturing sector—and the sharpest slump in oil output in almost three years, owing to planned maintenance works in the Kashagan oil field. The industrial downturn, coupled with lower oil prices, is likely to have bruised merchandise exports in May, which had barely recovered in April; in turn, this threatens to push the current account back into a deficit by the end of Q2. In the political arena, Kassym-Jomart Tokayev, a loyal lieutenant of former president Nursultan Nazarbayev, won a rubber-stamp presidential election on 9 June. This should ensure the continuity of economic policy ahead.
