Bilateral relations between Kazakhstan and the EU are governed by:

 

Funding is provided by the EU's Development Cooperation Instrument (DCI).

EU assistance to the country focuses on:

  • strengthening the capacity of regional and local government
  • supporting reform of the justice sector
  • improving the capacity of the public sector to introduce social and economic reforms.

It is planned to conclude an enhanced partnership and cooperation agreement , building on the potential for stronger EU-Kazakhstan relations.

The EU and Kazakhstan also cooperate in the framework of a regional approach, which includes all 5 Central Asian republics: the EU and Central Asia strategy for a new partnership  (2007).

As a middle-income country, Kazakhstan has graduated from bilateral grants provided under the Development Cooperation Instrument. However, the country will still participate in regional and thematic programmes.
