This was announced by the Minister for Investment and Development of the Republic of Kazakhstan Zhenis Kasymbek at the Republican meeting on improving the efficiency of transport and logistics infrastructure.
"As a result of creating competitive tariff rates and coordinated actions with partner countries by 2020, the volume of container transit traffic is planned to increase 10-fold up to 2 million TEUs," the minister said.
In addition, according to the minister, in 2017, the volume of cargo transported in the past five years through the territory of Kazakhstan is 2.1 million tons. In 2013, this volume amounted to 1.56 million, in 2014 - 1.49 million, in 2015 - 1.2 million, in 2016 - 1.4 million tons.

In 2017, domestic carriers took the dominant position with a share of 52% of the volume of these transportations," Kasymbek said.
He also noted that this year within the framework of 23 projects of Nurly Zhol, construction and reconstruction will cover 4.2 thousand kilometers of roads in all regions. Kazakhstan for the first time started such amount of work.
