Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific estimates 2011 Kazakhstan’s economy growth at 6.2%, said Noeleen Heyzer, Executive Secretary of United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP).

“After the moderate 1.2% in 2009, the economy growth bounced back up to 7% in 2010 against the backdrop of favorable external economic conditions (…) The economy is set to grow by 6.2% in 2010”, Noeleen Heyzer said today, May 5, in Astana when presenting the annual ESCAP report on the economic condition of the region.
She pointed out that “strong response of the Government was vital to stabilize the banking sector and secure the economy upturn”.

“Restored global demand for oil and other minerals led to greater efficiency of the industrial production that saw a growth of 10% in 2010. However, the agriculture sector saw a significant decline”, she said.
