Structural restructuring through opening of industrial associations and introduction of cluster technologieshas become possible mainly in most developed industries of the Kazakhstan economy including cotton-textile area. Kazakhstan is situated in the centre of broad markets sales of CIS and Eastern European states, which makes it possible to apply the development model to cluster industry. Resource endowment of cotton-textile industry of Kazakhstan is determined by such components as natural and climatic conditions favourable for cotton plant cultivation along with professional skills of local population, farm field irrigation and manufacturing capacity of cotton processors.
