In the Concept of development of the tourism industry of the Republic of Kazakhstan up to 2020, drawn up on the basis of the strategy “Kazakhstan-2030”, tourism is considered as one of the important areas in the social and economic development of the country.

In the implementation of the provisions of the industrial-innovative development of the economy of Kazakhstan, the leading role belongs to the system of domestic clusters. A special place among them is the tourist cluster. Five zones have been identified that will later become centers and locomotives of the domestic tourist industry. This is a kind of division of the country into zones that are most attractive in terms of creating the tourist infrastructure of a particular thematic specialization. One of these zones is Western Kazakhstan with its center in Aktau, which, as suggested by the authors of the tourist concept of Kazakhstan, may well occupy a niche of beach tourism and position itself as the “Caspian Riviera”.

The main goal of developing tourism in Kazakhstan is to create a modern, highly efficient and competitive tourist complex, on the basis of which conditions will be provided for the development of the industry as a sector of the economy, integration into the global tourist market system and the development of further international cooperation in the field of tourism.
