“Loans have grown 13% since last year. Household deposits stand at $55.2 billion. The assets of the National Oil Fund [accumulating windfall oil revenues] have exceeded $70 billion, growing by almost 22% in the current year. Pension funds have merged into the state-run Single Pension Fund. To ensure further growth of the banking sector, the National Bank is developing a concept to develop industry in Kazakhstan through to 2030. The concept is to be complete by June”, President said.
