Kazakhstan’s GDP growth in 2012 was primarily driven by expanding household and government consumption. We expect that shifting the focus of the government policies will cause a slowdown in private consumption growth to 6-5% in real terms in the coming years. Investment growth, by con- trast, is expected to pick up and reach 9% in 2015. Improving investment dynamics will provide for an acceleration of overall real GDP growth: by 2015, GDP growth will reach 6.5%.
