    OECD Sovereign Borrowing Outlook 2017 - Preliminary version

    The OECD Sovereign Borrowing Outlook provides regular updates on trends and developments associated with sovereign borrowing requirements, funding strategies, market infrastructure and debt levels from the perspective of public debt managers. The Outlook makes a policy distinction between funding strategy and borrowing requirements. The central government marketable gross borrowing needs, or requirements, are calculated on the basis of budget deficits and redemptions. The funding strategy entails decisions on how borrowing needs are going to be financed using different instruments and which distribution channels are being used. This edition provides data, information and background on sovereign borrowing needs and discusses funding strategies and debt management policies for the OECD area and country groupings. In particular, it examines: gross borrowing requirements; net borrowing requirements; central government marketable debt; interactions between fiscal policy, public debt management and monetary policy; funding strategies, procedures and instruments; the impact of new regulations on primary market operations; liquidity in secondary markets; implications of a low interest environment for government debt; and the outlook of inflation linked bonds.

    OECD Investment Policy Reviews: Kazakhstan 2017

    The Kazakh authorities have embarked upon an ambitious reform programme to improve the country’s framework for investment and strengthen the country as an attractive investment destination. This review, which was prepared in close cooperation with the Kazakh authorities in response to their 2012 request to adhere to the Declaration on International Investment and Multinational Enterprises (OECD Declaration), analyses the general investment framework as well as recent reform, and shows where further efforts are necessary. It assesses Kazakhstan’s ability to comply with the principles of openness, transparency and non-discrimination and its policy convergence with international responsible business conduct standards. Capitalising on the OECD’s multidisciplinary nature, this review also studies other areas such as the policy framework for the balancing of investor protection and the government's right to regulate, investment promotion and facilitation, SMEs policy, infrastructure development, trade policy and anti-corruption efforts. Since the first review ok Kazakhstan, in 2011, the authorities have made strides in opening the country to international investment and in improving the policy framework for investment. But additional efforts are required in some policy areas to strengthen Kazakhstan’s attractiveness for investors.
