In general, as growth reserves, a pool of 80 projects worth 2.0 trillion tenge has been formed for the coming years, with the creation of about 6.0 thousand jobs that will contribute to the development of the industrial sector of the economy and a significant increase in industrial production.
We should also focus on mechanical engineering, which is the driver of the economic growth of the region. Largely due to the new sub–sector - automotive industry, the share of manufacturing in the total volume of industry has reached 46.9%, and the share of mechanical engineering in processing is 41.5%. During the reporting period, products worth 363.7 billion tenge were produced here, with an increase of 17.7%.
Agriculture is the second basic direction of the region's economy. The industry employs more than 119 thousand people, which is 25.2% of the total number of employed people.

It is important to note that 112.5 billion tenge was allocated for transport infrastructure in 2020-2021. This made it possible to repair more than 1,000 km of highways and 451 streets of settlements.
The implementation of a major project is being completed – the construction of a bridge on the highway "Entrance to the city of Kostanay". The implementation of this project made it possible to bring the technical characteristics of the approaches to the bridge to the I technical category. At the end of the year, "The share of highways of regional and district significance that are in good and satisfactory condition" will be 78.0%.
Since the beginning of the year, 387.2 thousand m2 of housing has been commissioned in the Kostanay region, with an increase of 25.5%. According to the pace of housing commissioning, our region ranks 2nd in the republic. Investments in housing construction increased by 38.2%.
