Economic Development in Kazakhstan
The Role of Large Enterprises and Foreign Investment
By Anne E. Peck
Routledge – 2003 – 288 pages
Series: Central Asia Research Forum
Economic Development in Kazakhstan traces the role of large enterprises in the economy of Kazakhstan, their development through 70 years of socialism and their privatization since 1991 when Kazakhstan became independent. The book gives hitherto hidden insights into policies which aim at transforming the economy and individuals who now control parts of the economy and their political involvements, especially with the opposition party (Democratic Choice). This book will be of interest to professionals and business people connected to the region as well as scholars and students alike.
