The volume of transported goods, according to our estimate, is expected to reach 1.8 million tons per year,” Alisher Satybaldiyev said.
The total area of the industrial zone of Almaty is 490 hectares. Of these, 326 hectares have already been allocated for projects, 164 hectares for infrastructure.
“Taking into account the interest of investors, we plan to submit a proposal to the government to expand the area of the industrial zone by 200 hectares. Up to 10 meetings are held daily with potential residents, these are Russian and European companies. In particular, from Germany.
