Kazakhstan is located in the central part of the Eurasian continent, at an equal distance from the Atlantic and the Pacific Ocean. The country ranks 9th in the world in terms of the area of 2,724.9 thousand km².
This is a natural complex, which has incorporated four landscape zones - forest-steppe, steppe, semi-desert and desert. In Kazakhstan, more than 6,000 species of plants grow, about 500 species of birds nest in the vast expanses of the country, and more than 100 species of fish inhabit rivers and lakes.
The capital of the republic is Nur-Sultan (prev. - Astana).
The unique conditions created for investors, the lowest infrastructure tariffs, the lack of taxes and the stability of relations between investors and the state turn Kazakhstan into one of the leading industrial and logistics hubs between Europe and Asia.
Pavlodar region is one of the main industrial regions of Kazakhstan with a great natural resource potential, with a highly developed industrial and social infrastructure, high scientific and technical potential and a convenient geographical location on a logistics corridor linking the markets of Russia, China and Central Asia.
The region accounts for about 7% of industrial production, 70% of coal production, 3/4 production of ferroalloys, and 40% of oil products. There is sufficient potential for the development of chemical, machine-building and metalworking industries.
The largest Ekibastuz power plants, Aksu power plant, as well as a number of large thermal, servicing energy-intensive enterprises of the Pavlodar industrial complex generate 40% of the total republican electricity production with an aggregate capacity of 8,500 mW. Indisputable advantage of these power stations is competitive energy and thermal energy.
