The Special Economic Zone (SEZ) Seaport Aktau, established in 2003, is dedicated to the development of export-oriented manufacturing, leveraging the main port of Kazakhstan, which connects through the Caspian Sea. The SEZ offers a special legal regime, including tax exemptions, customs exemptions, and a land plot free of charge until 2028 in a designated area, providing a conducive environment for investment and industrial development.

Operations and Functions of  Special Economic Zone Seaport Aktau

JSC “SEZ Seaport Aktau,” established under the new Law of the Republic of Kazakhstan, plays a pivotal role in involving members in the SEZ, assisting participants in realizing their investment projects, signing and terminating contracts, attracting investments for infrastructure construction, and providing utility services to SEZ participants. The SEZ aims to promote and support key industries in the Mangystau region, ensuring the maximum development of highly efficient manufacturing industries, tourism, transport, and logistics potential within its territory.

The ports of Aktau and Kuryk have been incorporated into the SEZ following a presidential decree to enhance Kazakhstan’s transport and logistics potential, creating one of the largest international transport corridors with leading logistics companies. This expansion is expected to boost investment in the Mangystau Region and facilitate the construction of a container hub at the Aktau port by the end of 2025, along with the full equipment of ports with modern transshipment units. The SEZ’s strategic location and connectivity through the Aktau port, which accounts for 40% of the total transportation traffic on the Caspian Sea, further solidify its position as a key hub for international trade and logistics.
