Kazakhstan is becoming the favourite destination for Polish firms interested in doing business in Central Asia. Kazakhstan is chosen as the basis for business development thanks to modern law, preferential conditions and allowances for foreign investors. However, there are many minor legal peculiarities that one should be aware ofwhen deciding to operate on this market.

There is a great deal of interest in doing business in Kazakhstan, though it is important to be aware of numerous restrictions, such as geographical distance, mentality, specific non-tariff procedures to be followed, and competition from other countries.
