Global Jobs Pact Country Profile: Kazakhstan

In Kazakhstan, 2009 was a particularly difficult year for workers in the oil- and gas-producing industries. Additional funds equal to 15 per cent of the country’s GDP were released by the Government to help small and medium size enterprises cope with the crisis, through additional training and retraining of the unemployed, and targeted social assistance programmes.
