What is the nature of the transition in Kazakstan? Kazakstan has reconsidered its own system, priorities and future. This has also led to reconsideration of Kazakstan’ s relationship with neighbours and other countries. The pragmatic concerns of world society and the interdependence of new national economies have led economic systems in differing directions. Certainly the last decade has provided some lessons for Kazakstan, and the next generation will judge in which period the economy of Kazakstan gained the most — before or during transition. This is a concluding chapter, and cannot answer such a complicated question, in fact it is fair to say it is too early to reach conclusions. Nevertheless there are some dimensions which should be emphasised.
