Imangali Tasmagambetov spoke about Astana phenomenon, Tengrinews.kz reports. On February 9 Akim (Mayor) of Astana met with the capital’s citizens.

“Astana phenomenon is in its blistering development dynamics. This is what makes it different from monotonous cities. In a wide range of indexes Astana’s development is outside of economic canons of the cities’ evolution. For example, at the same period of time any other city would show double growth, while our city is demonstrating 10-fold actual growth,” Akim summed up social-economic development of Astana in 2011.

Speaking of attractiveness of Kazakhstan’s capital, Tasmagambetov said that up to 40 thousand people move to Astana every year, which is around 6 percent of the total number of citizens. According to Akim, this number of people is equal to the population of a small town, like Ridder and Lissakovsk.

“Speaking of 40 thousand people, this is 8 thousand average-sized families, 16 thousand grown-ups, often those looking for a job, 16 thousand pre-school and school-age children and around 8 thousand retired people. They need 6 new schools that require 10 billion tenge ($67.5 million) for construction, 32 kindergartens that cost 16 billion tenge ($108 million), 16 companies with 1,000 jobs and 440 thousand square meters of accommodation that require 66 billion tenge ($446 million). In such situation hypothetically only migration load could cost the city 100 billion tenge ($676 million) per year,” Tasmagambetov said about additional annual load on Astana.
