In line with the strong headwinds facing Kazakhstan's economy in 2015 and into 2016, the construction industry , particularly private investment, is beginning to show signs of diminishing confidence . The low oil price and volatile tenge have provoked the government to make far-reaching expenditure cuts in its 2015-2017 budget plan. Yet these will initially be made to social spending, while the government sustains infrastructure investment as part of the long-term plan to diversify the economy. Yet we believe the industry will also feel the tightening of the purse strings in the near term , as private investment wanes in line with a weakened consumer outlook .

The Kazakh infrastructure sector is facing severe challenges stemming from falling oil revenue, cuts to government expenditure and weak credit conditions. However, preparations for the 2017 World Expo, the country's rich natural resource endowment, a desire for economic diversification and sovereign wealth-backed infrastructure development will provide for distinct investment opportunities, some growth relief and continued investments. Following a generally weakening domestic economy, including falling loan and private consumption levels, we nonetheless expect infrastructure and construction growth to remain far below previously expected levels. However, the potential for the country's first PPP to gain traction in 2016 and a desire to become a Eurasian transport hub still be cause for measured optimism and the natural resource industries will continue to receive investment interest.

Key Trends And Developments

Against the weakened economic background, the government was forced to adjust its 2015-2017 budget plan, including a drop in public expenditure in the range of USD5.5bn in 2015.
