thad-geiger-with-kazakhstan-visitorsKazakhstan needs to create the necessary conditions and prerequisites to enable individual entrepreneurs and small business to grow into medium sized businesses. Unfortunately, the current tax code prevents growth by placing too high of a tax burden on innovative companies.

Private businesses are normally more efficient than state run enterprises. Therefore Kazakhstan must transfer non-strategic enterprises and services to the private sector.
