Zhamishev's arrival may portend positive changes in a rather 
sclerotic ministry that oversees several key functions, 
including taxation and customs.  Zhamishev, whose resume 
appears to be that of a classic 'technocrat' (and who is not 
known to belong to a political party), may be just what the 
Ministry needs.  His appointment may also be welcome news for 
the banking sector, which was recently subjected to some 
harsh remarks from Korzhova and to increasing inspections by 
her Ministry.  It is unclear, however, to what extent 
Zhamishev will be able to overcome the political and 
institutional burdens that plagued his predecessor, including 
fears stemming from aggressive oversight by the General 
Procurator's Office.
