The Minister of Industry and Infrastructure Development of Kazakhstan, Kairbek Uskenbayev, said that the automakers of the republic are negotiating the opening of a Toyota car assembly plant in Kazakhstan. According to Interfax, Uskenbayev spoke about this when answering a question about the possible transfer of the Toyota plant to Kazakhstan after its closure in Russia.

The Minister noted that Toyota is one of the most popular brands in the country. According to him, business will not discuss these issues with government agencies, because “these are purely technical issues: how much and who invests money, what competencies.”

“They are negotiating whether it will work out or not, I don’t know. But if Toyota opens, I think it will be one of the strongest successes of our country,” the minister said.

In September, Toyota stopped production in Russia. The plant in Shushary near St. Petersburg was closed, which worked for fifteen years.

The plant was idle due to logistical difficulties after the outbreak of hostilities in Ukraine.

Production in Russia started in 2007. The company employed 2350 people.
