Since 2016 Messe Frankfurt provides professional platforms for the automotive service industry in Kazakhstan, starting with the Kazakhstan International Automotive Expo supported by Automechanika (KIAE). Central Asia and Kazakhstan in particular remain attractive markets for investors, keeping a large growth potential for both auto retails and local producers of automotive components and due to the Belt and Road Initiative.
