Kazakhstan became a member of the Asian Development Bank (ADB) in 1994, shortly after it achieved independence.
During the past 27 years, ADB has aided Kazakhstan with financing, technical assistance, and knowledge support as part of its country operations. Priority areas of investment have been budget support, transport, the finance sector, agriculture, and renewable energy.

Current ADB operations in Kazakhstan are being implemented under the country partnership strategy, 2017–2021, which is structured around three pillars: economic diversification, inclusive development, and sustainable growth. Kazakhstan is an active member of the Central Asia Regional Economic Cooperation (CAREC) Program with the largest portfolio among its member-countries amounting to $9 billion, of which $2 billion was financed by ADB.
In 2020, ADB provided special assistance to Kazakhstan to help counter the severe impacts caused by the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak.
Since 1994, ADB has committed almost $6.48 billion in loans and over $61.75 million in technical assistance, including ADB-administered cofinancing, for Kazakhstan.
