According to World Bank analysts in Kazakhstan, all efforts should be accompanied by strong structural reforms in this area. “This may include the restructuring and privatization of enterprises in the quasi-public sector, which will lead to more effective governance and reduce fiscal risks. Responsible fiscal and monetary policy will support economic and price stability and stimulate investment in the non-oil economy. Higher incomes will also have positive effects on poverty reduction, “the report says.
