(1) The coexistence of restriction and encouragement .Kazakhstan has actively encouraged foreign policy, but in principle it also restricted foreign investment in the areas of national security, social order and environmental protection.
（2）The relevant laws and regulations are frequently revised ,but the policy is changeable ,and as a result the stability is poor. This makes the investment laws, regulations and policies face many variables.
（3）Random enforcement of the law. Due to the Kazakhstan system and poor management the law enforcement showed great randomness, resulting in law on investment incentives in the implementation because of the abiding of the law and which sell at discount quickly, which virtually increases the risk factor and in a certain extent affects investment enterprises in their appeal, especially to those who enjoy the preferential policies of the host country for the investment objectives of the enterprises is even more or so.
（4）The national treatment to the foreign investors in Kazakhstan does not mean that the legal status of foreigners and their own people is completely equal, but to give a certain limit to foreigners.
(5) Bad social climate is an important factor affecting the investment environment .Although Kazakhstan is legally committed to giving foreign investors a variety of concessions, the state organs and their staff are not allowed to interfere with foreign investment activities. But, in fact, due to the prevalence of corruption, the government’s functional department and the state judicial organs have weak legal consciousness and cannot work according to the law.
