At an expanded government session, President of Kazakhstan Kassym-Jomart Tokayev emphasized that social well-being is inextricably linked with the housing issue and in the foreseeable future, housing construction should become a priority in the government’s work. At the same time, housing construction, solving social problems, can become a locomotive of economic growth. For more information on the results of housing construction in Kazakhstan for 4 months of 2020, see the review by PrimeMinister.kz.
In 2018-2019, the pace of housing commissioning was quite high. This allowed solving housing problems of 25 thousand families, including 5.5 thousand low-income, large families and 3 thousand working young people.
Under the programs of the First President - Elbasy Nursultan Nazarbayev, Baqytty Otbasy and 7-20-25, about 20 thousand Kazakhstani families received loans.
The so-called “Housing Affordability Ladder” has been introduced, which will tell each Kazakhstani citizen what state support and which housing can be claimed depending on their income.
Supporting construction industry
In order to increase the efficiency of the state’s policy on providing housing and to maintain the current volume of construction, an order of the Head of State approved the government’s proposal to additionally allocate 390 billion tenge for the implementation of the Nurly Zher State Program.
As part of this instruction, on April 9, 2020, the National Bank of the Republic of Kazakhstan, through a subsidiary of Kazakhstan Sustainability Fund JSC, acquired bonds of Baiterek NMH JSC for a total amount of 180 billion tenge (under conditions: at 4% per annum for a period of 2 years).
Speaking at the final meeting of the State Commission on the State of Emergency, the Head of State Tokayev identified a number of the most urgent tasks that need to be addressed in the near future. Among them is the construction of affordable housing.
To address the waiting list, the President instructed to launch a new project to provide credit housing — 5-10-20. For these purposes, within the framework of anti-crisis funds, 390 billion tenge will be allocated.
In addition, the Head of State pointed to the need to modernize the institutional structure. So, by the end of the year, on the basis of JSC Housing Construction Savings Bank of Kazakhstan, a full-fledged development and support institute, Otbasy Bank, should be created, which will centrally carry out accounting, statement and distribution of housing.
Measures to prevent downtime in construction sector
As part of the Nurly Zher State Program, the country provides for a number of specific measures aimed at supporting the construction industry. So, the opportunity has been provided for akimats to purchase finished housing from private developers to provide housing to needy citizens. For this purpose, this year, 35 billion tenge is provided for the acquisition of more than 4 thousand apartments. Funds from the republican budget will be allocated according to limit restrictions (140-180 thousand tenge — 1 m²). At the same time, akimats in the purchase of housing have the opportunity to co-finance expenses from the local budget.
Currently, the state takes the most necessary measures to mitigate the impact of an emergency in the construction sector and prevent stagnation due to the coronavirus pandemic.
By the decision of the State Commission on Ensuring the State of Emergency under the President of the Republic of Kazakhstan dated April 13, 2020, a phased resumption of the work of business entities was introduced, provided that the required sanitary and epidemiological measures were maintained while observing the separation of employees at workplaces.
Since April 20, 2020, the industrial and construction enterprises in the cities of Nur-Sultan and Almaty, as well as certain sectors of the service sector, including construction companies, asphalt and concrete plants, large construction stores with an area of more than 2 thousand m², have resumed their work. In other regions, this work is also ongoing.
In addition, in order to prevent the deadlines for completion of construction projects, the akimats of the regions and cities of Nur-Sultan, Almaty, Shymkent sent relevant recommendations on the need to revise the schedule of construction and installation works and increase the pace of construction of socially significant objects after quarantine measures have been lifted.
Also, within the framework of the Nurly Zher State Program, a public-private partnership mechanism is being introduced to implement credit housing projects for the waiting list by akimats and private developers with a land plot and approved design and estimate documentation, unfinished facilities.
In addition, amendments were made to the special procedure for public procurement approved by the Government of the Republic of Kazakhstan for the period of crisis situations, in terms of procurement of construction and installation works from one source (in the form of a simplified tender) at the suggestions of local executive bodies. This measure will accelerate the process of the competition from 45-60 to 7 days.
Particular attention is paid to the development of the construction industry. As part of the work on import substitution, 33 new projects are being implemented. Of these, a 32 billion tenge glass plant is being constructed in Kyzylorda region to cover the need for flat glass. In addition, the production of polyethylene pipes for 13 billion tenge is launched in Nur-Sultan (Kerim plastik pipes LLP). The production of ceramics (Zerde Ceramics Aktobe LLP) and reinforcement by 40 billion tenge (Reinforcing Taraz Plant LLP) is increasing by 26 billion tenge.
In addition, jointly with large construction companies and Sovereign Wealth Fund Samruk-Kazyna JSC, within the framework of the Economy of Simple Things program, projects are being launched with 100% import substitution for the production of refractory bricks, roofing materials, sanitary ware and paints. With the launch of these enterprises, the share of imports will decrease to 54% and the use of Kazakh construction industry products in housing construction will increase to 95%.
According to the current legislation, the possibility of adjusting projects financed from local and republican budgets is allowed when the exchange rate changes and additional costs are considered at the appropriate budget commissions in the presence of state expertise.
