NUR-SULTAN / ex ASTANA (Satrapia) — The meeting of the State Economic Modernisation Commission, chaired by Prime Minister Askar Mamin, discussed the privatisation of the assets of Samruk-Kazyna, deciding to delay the privatization plan..

The overall privatisation plan 2016-2020 includes 167 assets of the Samruk-Kazyna NWF joint stock company. So far, the transfer of 138 assets has been completed. 21 companies are in the process of sale, reorganisation or simply liquidation.
