Effective public administration

According to Smailov, the action plan focuses on increasing the responsibility and accountability of government officials for the implementation of government programs and the use of budgetary funds. A set of measures will be developed aimed at improving budget planning, as well as eliminating ineffective image spending.

Dynamic economy – the basis of well-being for all

By the end of the year, the state program of industrial-innovative development for 2020-2025 will be adopted, which will focus on further improving the competitiveness of the manufacturing industry.

“The implementation of the program will result in a real increase in labor productivity by 1.7 times, an increase in the volume of non-primary exports — by 2.3 times, a real increase in investments in fixed assets — by 2.3 times, an increase in the number of operating enterprises — by 1.6 times,” reported Kassymbek.

Particular attention was paid to the increase in local content. Measures developed jointly with the Atameken will allow reloading more than 1,000 domestic enterprises, increasing the local content of manufactured goods up to 60%, as well as stimulating the development of branches of the “economy of simple things.”

As part of the implementation of the Action Plan, a separate package of measures (a roadmap) is being developed to increase local content in the procurement of subsoil users and backbone enterprises.

Prosperous and modern village

Until Nov. 1, changes will be made to the state program for the development of the agro-industrial complex, aimed at increasing the efficiency and transparency of subsidizing the agro-industrial sector, rational use of land resources and pastures, and expanding new irrigated agricultural land. As a result, in 2021, labor productivity will increase by 2.2 times compared with 2017, the volume of gross agricultural output — by 1.7 times, the volume of investment in fixed assets in agriculture — by 3 times. All the necessary legislative changes will be provided in the Law “On Amendments and Additions to Certain Legislative Acts on Agro-Industrial Complex Issues.”

First-class infrastructure

At the same time, Kassymbek reported that by the end of this year the Government will adopt the Nurly Zhol State Program for Infrastructure Development for 2020-2025. The formation of a unified transport system of the country within the Center-East, Center-South, Center-North and Center-West corridors will be completed.

As part of the state program, it is planned to reconstruct about 7 thousand km and repair 11 thousand km of roads of republican significance, with the introduction of a payment for 12 thousand km. All types of works (repair, construction and reconstruction) will be carried out at 30 thousand km of local roads. Thus, the share of republican roads in good and satisfactory condition by 2025 will be increased to 100%, and local — ​​to 95%.

In addition, as part of the country's gas supply, the Government will ensure the timely completion of the construction of the Saryarka gas pipeline. The launch of the pipeline will provide natural gas to a population of 171 settlements, including the cities of Nur-Sultan, Karaganda, Temirtau, and Zhezkazgan. This will also improve their ecological condition.

Affordable housing, clean environment

To increase housing affordability and transparency for the population of the housing policy, by Sep. 1, 2019, all existing housing programs will be consolidated into a single housing policy. By the end of the year, the Government will approve the Nurly Zher housing program until 2025.

To solve the housing problems of large families in the framework of the Nurly Zher, 40 thousand rental dwellings will be built until 2025. For today, since May, 1,480 large families have been provided with attraction of investments and sponsors. In general, by the end of the year more than 7 thousand families will be provided.

To solve the housing problems of working youth, 3 thousand apartments will be built in 3 years.

As a result of the program, 650,000 families or more than 2 million citizens will be provided with new housing. To this end, it is planned to introduce at least 12-13 million m² per year annually as part of the program.

Also today, the Environmental Code is being developed, under which it is planned to encourage industrial enterprises to introduce the best available cleaning technologies and drastically reduce emissions.

Strong regions — strong Kazakhstan

By Dec. 1, 2019, the Government will approve a state program for the development of regions until 2025. The main goal is to improve the quality of life of the population through controlled urbanization, increasing the availability of social benefits to the population according to the principle of “walking distance.”

As part of the state program for the development of rural settlements, a comprehensive program “Aul – El Besigi” on the modernization of rural infrastructure is provided for. Together with the regional akimats, 52 rural settlements were selected in 2019, where 452 events will be implemented. As a result, this year the program “Aul – El Besigi” will cover 700 thousand people, and by 2025 — 83% of the rural population or 6.5 million people.

At the same time, special attention will be paid to the development of the outskirts of the large cities of Nur-Sultan, Almaty and Shymkent, since almost one fifth of their population is not provided with the necessary infrastructure. For the next three years, 85 projects will be implemented, these measures will improve the quality of life for more than half a million people.

“The Government’s primary task is to determine the implementation of the election platform. Timely and high-quality execution of the Action Plan will ensure the well-being of citizens and solve social issues,” said Kassymbek in conclusion.
