ADB opened its Kazakhstan Resident Mission (KARM) in 1998. KARM has its head office in Astana and one branch in Almaty. The Astana office provides primary support for operations in the country and policy dialogue with the government. The Almaty branch hosts region-wide private sector operations and knowledge work. Both offices provide logistical support for ADB missions visiting Kazakhstan.
KARM conducts country partnership strategy development, programming, portfolio, and knowledge management activities. It also coordinates ADB operations with other development partners and engages in dialogues with local stakeholders, including academic institutions, think-tanks, the civil society, and nongovernmental organizations.
