The main focus of economic modernization is the industrial and innovative development of key industries.
Since 2015, the implementation of the State Program on Industrial-Innovative Development for 2015–2019, which is a logical continuation of the previous program, began. Its main difference is the focus on the development of the manufacturing industry, regional specialization using a cluster approach. On this basis, the Karaganda region's specialization is defined - black, non-ferrous metallurgy, production of chemicals for industry, production of machinery and equipment for the mining industry, electrical equipment, building materials, food products.
Taking into account the identified priorities, the initiation, search and implementation of high-tech projects are underway. In order to improve the investment attractiveness and stimulate the inflow of investments into the regional economy in the territory of the Karaganda region, the Saryarka FEZ was created. The commissioned infrastructure facilities of the FEZ successfully provide infrastructure services (electricity, railway services) to existing participants.
