Addressing the Government session, the country's central bank chief highlighted that since the year-start, the Kazakhstani tenge has been strengthening against the US dollar. As of February 8, the exchange rate was seen to be trading at KZT 378.73 per $1. The national currency of Kazakhstan has strengthened by 1.4% year-to-date.

"The National Bank's net interventions in the foreign exchange market in January 2019 were equal to zero. At the end of January, the foreign-exchange reserves of the National Bank amounted to $30.6 billion, and the National Fund's assets reached $58.2 billion. International reserves totaled $88.8 billion," Daniyar Akishev informed.
