Imports in Kazakhstan
Kazakhstan - Imports (percent change)Recent data shows that GDP accelerated further in Q1. Q1’s expansion was driven mainly by the mining and manufacturing sectors. In contrast, the agriculture and services sectors saw smaller expansions, with the latter potentially linked to unrest in January and softer Russian visitor arrivals. Turning to Q2, growth is likely to be sluggish. In April, oil production fell markedly and manufacturing output slowed. Moreover, soaring inflation and consequent interest rate hikes should be dampening consumption. However, the services PMI recovered well above the 50-point mark in April and May, suggesting that businesses are weathering the adverse international environment rather well. Meanwhile, the country voted in early June in favor of a new constitution which aims to give more power to parliament and reduce the influence of former president Nazarbayev.
