Within the framework of the Industrialization Map, more than 10 thousand permanent jobs were created in 2016. This was reported by Minister of Investments and Development Zhenis Kassymbek at the regular Government meeting chaired by Prime Minister Bakytzhan Sagintayev.
The state budget and the National Fund allocated 183.2 billion tenge in 2016 for implementing Program activities. According to the results of 2016, the application of funds was 100% for the National Fund, 99.5% for the state budget, Z. Kassymbek reported.
According to the Minister, within the framework of the Industrialization Map in 2016 � 130 projects amounting to 878 billion tenge were introduced, more than 10 thousand permanent jobs were created.
The projects introduced by the Map in 2016 produced products worth more than 2.2 trillion tenge. The projects introduced by the Map in 2016 produced about 18.5% of the total manufacturing industry.
As a result of 2016, the manufacturing sector showed steady real growth (+ 0.7% to 2015) against a background of a decline in mining industries (-2.7% to 2015). The growth in the manufacturing industry is primarily due to the increase in production in priority sectors: non-ferrous (by 8.5%) and black (by 3.3%) metallurgy, agricultural machinery (by 5.6%), food products (by 3, 9%), agrochemistry (3.1%), oil refining (0.4%).
“As a result, the contribution of the manufacturing sector to the economy of our country has increased. In 2016, comparing with the previous year, the share of the manufacturing sector in GDP increased to 10.7%, in industry to 41.5%, � Z. Kassymbek concluded.
