Imports in Kazakhstan

Kazakhstan Imports (%) | Economic News & Forecasts

Kazakhstan - Imports (percent change)

National accounts revealed that the economy lost momentum in the first quarter. Manufacturing activity languished in the doldrums on a slowdown in key trading partners, while electricity supply swung to decline and the expansion of the services sector softened. Turning to the second quarter, a 4.1% rise in the short-term economic indicator for January–April suggests growth remained solid at the start of the period. The expansion was fueled by higher oil prices and a likely boost in exports, thanks to a weaker tenge, which should have kept the current account in surplus. This countered the impact of a continued weakening in the industrial sector. Prevailing uncertainty on the political front ahead of the 9 June snap election, however, has spurred sizable capital outflows, which has in turn led to depletion of reserves and a further depreciation of the tenge.
