“How DBK project changed my life”

People are the main value of the Development Bank of Kazakhstan. Behind each implemented project are people and their destinies. Dedicated professionals work selflessly in the country’s largest industrial plants and are building the future of Kazakhstan. Currently, more than 30,000 jobs have been created in the financed enterprises of DBK.

Today within the rubric “How DBK project changed my life” we offer to get acquainted with the employees, namely with the beautiful half of the super modern factory Hyundai Trans Kazakhstan, which has recently occupied the top niche in the domestic automotive industry.

About 400 people work at the Hyundai Trans Kazakhstan enterprise, and with full capacity, the figure will increase to 700, and with a multiplicative effect, the indicator will reach more than a thousand people. World experience has shown that engineering, with its multiplier effect on the development of related industries, increases the employment of the population and thus ensures the country’s competitiveness. At the plant calculated that one job creates up to 15 jobs in related industries (service, sales, logistics, insurance, banking sector, marketing, auto components production), and the cost of one place is 40.1 million tenge.
