Pavel Beklemishev:
The issue of «local content» is very acute

The dynamically-developing oil and gas sector in Kazakhstan has created the prerequisites for actively engaging various industries. Legislation envisions advantages for local manufacturers, which according to lawmakers and executives in the country, should boost financial support for developing Kazakh metalworking, heavy machine tooling and so on. In practice of course, things are not that easy.
