COMMENTS ON SOURCES OF DATA FOR KAZAKHSTAN:

Foreign sources

World Bank:

We could perhaps send them (1) Country Partnership Strategy and (2) Poverty Assessment; both have been released this year. Since other recent reports of the World Bank are sector-specific (i.e. agriculture, forestry, infrastructure), they could be sent out later on.

Asian Development Bank:

We could send them two copies of "Country Strategy and Program"; one was issued in 2003 and another was approved October this year.

EBRD:

We could send them the Investment Brochure as well as the EBRD Strategy Program for Kazakhstan with Annexes.

IMF:

(1) Selected Issues and Statistical Appendix for various years;

(2) 2004 Report for the Article 4 Consultations,

(3) 2004 FSAP report (with two technical notes on bank profitability and investment opportunities for pension funds),

(4) 2004 FSSA report.

UNDP

Domestic sources

National Bank of Kazakhstan

There is a lot of financial information there, both in Russian and English. The only regular printed publication in English (which is also available on-line) is the monthly Statistical Bulletin. We could send them the latest on-line issue of this Bulletin.

The web-site address is www.nationalbank.kz

Statistical Agency

There is a lot of information, but most of the reports are in Russian. The Agency publishes regularly two English reports: annual Statistical Yearbook of Kazakhstan and quarterly Statistical Bulletin. We could send them Statistical Yearbook for 2003 and the latest on-line issue of the Statistical Bulletin.

The web-site address is www.stat.kz

Ministry of Finance

Useful website with a lot of information, but, unfortunately, only for Russian-speaking people.
