According to the official, the state-run Zhana Ile will have a developed infrastructure, high-class hotels, entertainment and sport sites. Proximity of the Center to the National Nature Park Altyn Emel and Tamgaly Tas mountain area will attract both Kazakhstan and foreign tourists.

“All the interested state departments and agencies have worked well on the project and developed it in details. Our experts took into account the national specifics of Kazakh architecture and culture. Special attention was given to electric power networks, waste treatment facilities and sustainability of the future tourist center. Water protective measures and provision of convenient access roads are also important parts of the project,” Batalov said. According to him, the authorities are still resolving the funding issues.
