About Kazakhstan

Kazakhstan has enjoyed steady growth over the past decade, largely fueled by the development of its oil and gas resources. In spite of this growth, Kazakhstan continues to face a number of development challenges that constrain progress. The United States partners with Kazakhstan to support the country’s emergence as a regional leader, contributing to peace and prosperity within the region and beyond.

USAID partners with the government, private sector and people of Kazakhstan to enhance economic diversification, encourage further democratic reforms, improve health services, prevent tuberculosis and HIV, and reduce carbon emissions. As part of the USAID Mission to Central Asia, USAID in Kazakhstan participates in a range of regional programming, including the U.S. Government’s New Silk Road initiative, which increases regional connections between the economies and peoples of South and Central Asia—including Afghanistan—to foster greater stability and prosperity across the region.
