Amid concerns over China’s dominant control of global rare earth elements (REE) production, Western nations are seeking alternative sources to mitigate potential disruptions. Kazakhstan is emerging as a prominent contender, drawing increased attention as a strategic supplier of these crucial materials.

Already supplying over half of the raw materials essential to the EU economy, Kazakhstan’s significance in the global market is undeniable. Its status as one of the top 10 copper-producing nations underscores its potential to establish a robust cluster for battery material production, including nickel, cobalt, manganese, and lithium.
