Banking System Restructuring in Kazakhstan, David Hoelscher

Abstract
This paper reviews financial restructuring in Kazakhstan, and the condition of the financial system in the period following independence.

The next phase saw reforms to regulatory and institutional structures. The paper shows that, by the end of 1997, substantial reforms in the structure of the financial system had been accomplished and a major financial collapse avoided. However, the banking system had not begun to play an active role in financial intermediation
