Impact of COVID-19 on the Key Economic Sectors of Kazakhstan - KPMG Survey

18 may 2020

Dear colleagues,

KPMG published the survey on the impact of the spread of COVID-19 on enterprises of the key industries of the Republic of Kazakhstan.

According to the preliminary estimates of a number of economists, the current economic crisis may become the deepest since World War II. An abrupt contraction of sales markets and breaks in supply chains, the cancellation of flights and constraints on the free movement of citizens, as well as the large-scale transition to self-isolation and lockdown have resulted in a significant contraction of business in various industries.

In April 2020, the KPMG expert team conducted a survey among more than 50 leaders of Kazakhstan’s business community, covering 14 different sectors of the economy:

  • Finance
  • Mining
  • P&U
  • Agriculture
  • Aviation
  • Food retail
  • Non-food retail
  • Telecom
  • Real estate
  • Industrial markets
  • Food production
  • Pharmaceuticals
  • Restaurant business
  • Fitness

The survey is available in English on our kpmg.kz web-site.

We hope that you will find this document insightful for your daily work and for the adoption of strategic decisions.

Best regards,

KPMG in Kazakhstan and Central Asia
