Kazakhstan is a Central Asian nation that is landlocked. The nation is rich in hydrocarbon and mineral resources, including fossil fuel, natural gas, iron ore, manganese ore, chromium ore, nickel, cobalt, copper, lead, zinc, bauxite, and so on. The nation also has a huge agricultural region, and agribusiness is being developed as a result. The nation's oil and gas exploration and production business is thriving, owing mostly to the recent massive development of the oil field. Kazakhstan's massive hydrocarbon and mineral deposits, particularly in the Caspian Basin, serve as the country's economic backbone. The nation is the world's biggest uranium producer. Kazakhstan's vast agriculture industry includes animals and grain.

Kazakhstan's average after-tax wage is $354, which is enough to pay living costs for 0.7 months.

5. Cost of renting in Kazakhstan

The cost of living in Kazakhstan varies substantially across cities. Furthermore, the ever-changing value of the tenge makes generalizing the average cost of living in the country problematic.

When it comes to lodging costs, they vary depending on the location and kind of property. Apartments in the city center are more costly than those outside of the city. Modern complex flats are more costly than Soviet-style apartments. Excessive housing rentals significantly raise the cost of living in Kazakhstan's cities.

6. Major industries in Kazakhstan

Despite the government's attempts to diversify, Kazakhstan is heavily reliant on oil prices, and the economy is based on hydrocarbon exports.

The government's economic diversification agenda is confronting a number of problems, including a decline in global demand for fossil resources, increasing regional rivalry for investment, and higher risks of financial instability.

The country's agriculture is extensive—Kazakhstan is one of the world's major wheat producers. Agribusiness is well established; dairy and livestock sectors make for a significant portion of the agricultural industry.

Tourism, retail, hospitality, wholesale, and transportation employ over 30% of the workforce and are mostly located in cities.
