ASTANA, August 21 / TASS / The Asian Development Bank (ADB) has approved a loan of $1 billion for assistance to Kazakhstan in the continuation of government programs to strengthen the economy, the bank said in a statement on Friday.

On August 19, Prime Minister of Kazakhstan Karim Masimv said at a government telephone conference that the country will allow its national currency tenge to float freely, "The decision was made to start a new economic policy from August 20 on the basis of inflation targeting and to cancel the currency corridor," the premier cited a joint statement of the government and the National Bank.
