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.
"The loan will give Kazakhstan an opportunity to overcome the unintended consequences of the falling oil prices and the negative impact of the economic recession in neighboring countries" ADB said.
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.
