Forbes Kazakhstan continues a series of interviews in the Q&A section. This time, business analyst Batyrkhan Togaibayev spoke to Yerkin Tatishev, the majority owner and Chairman of the Board of Directors of Kusto Group. Yerkin told about how his diversified business copes with lockdown, what measures of support his businesses received in Kazakhstan, Canada, China, Georgia, Israel, Singapore and other countries.
According to him, assistance in different countries really differs and if in Singapore the government took unprecedented measures, where every business participant could count on simplified procedures for obtaining support, in Kazakhstan these processes were “loaded” with unnecessary bureaucracy. According to Yerkin, this will affect the fact that not all businesses in Kazakhstan will survive until the end of this year.
