The article indicates some problems in the bilateral cooperation of the two states. Among these problems, the most important are noted. For example, the author notes that the situation with a large number of trade barriers prevents more Chinese and Kazakh enterprises from entering the market.

A set of proposals to mitigate the problems of economic cooperation between Kazakhstan and China are offered in the conclusion of the article.
