Before the event, Nursultan Nazarbayev familiarized himself with a number of youth projects for the production of clothing, sports nutrition, the creation of interactive service platforms and instructed the Government to closely monitor their implementation and promotion.

Addressing the ceremony participants, the Head of State congratulated those present on the opening of the Year of Youth and stressed the importance of this event for new generations of Kazakhstanis.

“Youth is a key factor in the competitiveness of our country in the modern world. It is up to you - the future of Kazakhstan depends on your knowledge, energy and patriotism. Everything that we are doing now is done for the sake of your happy life, so that you can fully realize your potential and opportunities,” - Nursultan Nazarbayev said.

The President of Kazakhstan pointed out the urgency of the housing issue for young families in large cities and stressed that to solve it, it is necessary to have a stable income, since work is the main source of human well-being.

“Last year more than 125 thousand young people graduated from high school in Kazakhstan. In the medium term, the number of young people entering the labor market will only grow. Currently, there are about 300 thousand people in the country, or 9% of young people that are not involved in educational and labor activities. It is necessary to take effective measures that will contribute to the annual reduction of this category of young people,” – the Head of State said.

Nursultan Nazarbayev separately focused on the key priorities of the qualitative development of the technical and vocational education system.

“It is necessary to develop the program “Zhas Maman”, on the principle of “100/200 ”. In three years, the project will cover about 200 thousand young citizens in all regions of the country. Within its framework, specialists will be trained in the 100 most demanded industrial and service professions in 200 modernized educational institutions,” – the President of Kazakhstan said.

In conclusion, the Head of State instructed the Government and local executive bodies to develop a special Roadmap, which should contain effective support tools designed to meet the urgent needs of young Kazakhstanis in affordable and high-quality education, work, housing and family formation.

Today at the Government meeting, following the consideration of the implementation of the “Five Social Initiatives of the President”, Prime Minister Bakytzhan Sagintayev instructed to constantly monitor the execution of the Head of State’s orders. These initiatives affect the interests of virtually the entire population of the country.

Bozumbayev, First Deputy Ministers of National Economy R. Dalenov, Agriculture - A. Envied, as well as Akims of East Kazakhstan region D. Akhmetov , Astana - B. Sultanov, Shymkent - G. Abdrakhimov, the Prime Minister noted that the “Five Social Initiatives of the President” is a large-scale program of the Head of State that affects the interests of almost the entire population of the country. In this regard, it is necessary to ensure the qualitative implementation of each initiative.

In addition, the Ministry of Education and Science, together with the Akimats, was entrusted with the task of working out the proposals voiced during the meeting.

On the fourth initiative, the achievement of planned targets for microcredits was noted. At the same time, special attention should be paid to improving the quality of implementation of this issue, especially in cities. It is entrusted to strengthen coordination on the part of the Ministries of National Economy, Labor and Social Protection of Population. In addition, in order to ensure the application of disbursed microcredits in the regions, it was entrusted to analyze the causes and eliminate the existing obstacles. In this issue, the special role of the Atameken National Chamber of Entrepreneurs in terms of involvement of the Bastau-Business project graduates in the program was noted.

In terms of execution of the fifth direction, it is necessary to ensure timely construction and launch of the Saryarka gas pipeline. Minister of Energy K. Bozumbayev has been instructed to keep this issue under special control.

At the Government meeting chaired by the Prime Minister of the Republic of Kazakhstan Bakytzhan Sagintayev, Minister of Energy K. Bozumbayev reported on the current situation on the construction of the Saryarka gas pipeline as part of the implementation of the President’s Five Social Initiatives.

Recall, the Saryarka gas pipeline construction project is aimed at ensuring the country's energy security, reliable and uninterrupted gas supply to the central and northern regions, as well as improving the environmental situation in general.

Socio-economic effect:

- Phased provision of 171 settlements along the route of the first stage of the gas pipeline;

- Infrastructure development along the main gas pipeline route;

- Creation of more than 1 690 jobs during the construction period, and about 200 jobs during the operation period;

- Improvement of the ecological condition of the city of Astana and other localities along the main gas pipeline route.

According to the Ministry of Energy of the Republic of Kazakhstan, on November 19, 2018, AstanaGaz KMG JSC and NGSK KazStroyService JSC signed an agreement on the construction of the Saryarka gas pipeline. According to the schedule, construction is planned to be carried out simultaneously by five linear flows. Thus, the completion of the construction of the linear part of the gas pipeline with the installation and hydrotesting of the pipeline is scheduled for the end of 2019.

Mobilization of equipment, hardware, and personnel of the contractor will begin at the end of January of this year. Preparation of the route will start from February 27. At the same time, the delivery of the first batch of the linear pipe is scheduled for the beginning of March with the completion in August of this year. Welding works of linear pipes will begin on March 21 of that year.

As for gas distribution networks, according to K. Bozumbayev, at present the Akimats of Astana, Akmola and Karaganda regions are at the stage of completing design and estimate documentation (DED) for the construction of the first stages of gas distribution networks.

According to the Akimats, in the first quarter of 2019, it is expected to receive a state expert opinion on the design and estimate documentation.

After receiving a positive conclusion of an integrated departmental examination by the RSE "Gosexpertiza" of the DED for the above projects, the Ministries of Energy, Finance together with concerned government agencies and organizations will work out the financing of the construction of gas distribution networks of settlements along the Saryarka gas pipeline in the manner prescribed by law.

According to K. Bozumbayev, this order is under constant monitoring.

Today’s Government meeting chaired by the Prime Minister of the Republic of Kazakhstan Bakytzhan Sagintayev covered the progress of the implementation of the Five Social Initiatives of the President. The Minister of Labor and Social Protection of Population M. Abylkassymova and First Deputy Ministers of Agriculture A. Yevniyev, National Economy - R. Dalenov, reported on the execution of the fourth direction “Expansion of Microlending”.

On the orders of the Head of State, in the framework of the Fourth Social Initiative, the Ministry of Labor and Social Protection of Population implements microcredit for self-employed and unemployed citizens to ensure the growth of incomes of the population through the development of entrepreneurship. Thus, in 2018, funding for the program was increased by 20 billion tenge, including for microlending in cities - 6 billion tenge, in villages - 14 billion tenge.

“Taking into account the additionally allocated funds, the total amount for microcredit amounted to 62 billion tenge. Of these, 45 billion tenge (73%) were allocated for microcredit in rural areas and 17 billion tenge (27%) in urban areas. With the funds allocated, the microcredit coverage plan was doubled compared with 2017 and amounted to 14 thousand people,” – Minister M. Abylkassymova said.

According to the terms of the Program, microcredits are provided for the purpose of opening a microbusiness, expanding an existing business and developing anchor cooperation. Microcredits are granted for a period of up to 5 years, and for projects in the field of animal husbandry and the creation of agricultural cooperatives up to 7 years. The nominal interest rate on loans is no more than 6% per annum. Also for start-up entrepreneurs, guarantees are provided not exceeding 85% of the loan amount.

In 2018, in order to effectively implement the Fourth Social Initiative, the Program was amended to include:

- Differentiation of microcredit limits in rural areas and cities,

- Increasing the size of microcredits in rural areas for the development of anchor cooperatives - from 5 to 8 thousand MCI;

- The development of anchor cooperatives around the processing of agricultural enterprises and the simplification of procedures for the issuance of microloans;

- Complement of the number of participants in the Program with existing entrepreneurs;

- Reduction of requirements for creating at least one new permanent workplace for existing entrepreneurs, participants of anchor cooperatives and agricultural cooperatives;

- The inclusion of rules for guaranteeing entrepreneurs - participants of anchor cooperatives, the period of state registration of which with tax authorities is more than three years.

According to M. Abylkassymova, according to the results of 2018, 59.5 billion tenge was applied under the microlending program, of which 45.4 billion tenge in the countryside, 14.1 billion tenge in urban areas. In total, 14 053 microloans were issued in 2018, of which 12 760, or 116% of the annual plan, in rural areas, 1293 in urban areas. The average size of microloans in rural areas was 3.5 million tenge, and 11 million tenge in cities.

At the same time, out of the number of microloans issued, 9772 microloans accounted for the support of Start-up projects, 1024 microloans contributed to the development of anchor business, and 3257 microloans for the expansion of one’s own business.

In terms of economic sectors, microcredits were granted for the development of animal husbandry - 76%, crop production - 2.7%, poultry farming - 2.2%, transport and warehousing - 6%, manufacturing industry - 2% and provision of other types of services - 5.6%.

As M. Abylkassymova noted, as part of the microcredit program, 13367 self-employed people and 1686 unemployed people had the opportunity to do business, as well as to formalize their activities. Thus, in the framework of this initiative, an important social effect was obtained in the form of job creation. Total microcredit recipients additionally created 12 613 jobs.

It should be noted that one of the conditions for obtaining microloans under the Program is training in the basics of entrepreneurship under the Bastau-Business project. This project is being implemented jointly with the Atameken National Chamber of Entrepreneurs. In 2018, training covered 28.3 thousand people or 100% of the annual plan, of which 19.4 thousand participants defended their business projects, of which 7.7 thousand received microcredits. Following the results of training in 2018, 95% of the number of participants who launched the business began to transfer taxes to the budget.

According to M. Abylkassymova, this year at the expense of the allocated funds, the task has been set to cover 14 000 people with microloans, of which 12 000 people in rural areas, 2000 people in urban areas. This year, the amount of funding for the microcredit program is 62 billion tenge.

According to the Labor Ministry, this year, in order to reach microcredit indicators, microcredit program operators together with regional Akimats need to speed up the signing of tripartite loan agreements and ensure targeted use of allocated funds and bringing to final borrowers.

In the direction of "Development of microcredit" special attention is paid to work in rural areas. First Deputy Minister of Agriculture A. Yevniyev reported that the provision of microcredits for the implementation of business projects in rural areas and small towns is being implemented within the framework of the State Program “Yenbek”. For these purposes, in 2018, a budget loan was allocated in the amount of 44.7 billion tenge, including 13.9 billion tenge of additional funds allocated under the “Five Social Initiatives of the President”. In addition, there is a mechanism for guaranteeing microloans issued through microfinance organizations and credit partnerships. The operator is KazAgroGarant JSC. Thus, in 2018, 553 guarantees were issued in the amount of 1.6 billion tenge. In 2019, it is planned to issue 12 thousand microloans, including 2400 - for start-up business.

In turn, First Deputy Minister of National Economy R. Dalenov reported that in 2018 13.9 billion tenge was allocated for microcrediting in cities, including 6.1 billion tenge additionally allocated from the National Budget within the framework of the Five Social Initiatives. In the cities and single-industry towns, 1 311 projects worth 14.4 billion tenge were financed.

In case of insufficiency of collateral, entrepreneurs are granted guarantees of microcredits up to 85%. In 2018, 484 contracts of guarantees in the amount of 2.8 billion tenge were concluded. Almost every third loan provided guarantees. In 2019, 9.3 billion tenge was allocated from the National Budget, and also seven billion tenge was planned to be allocated from the local budget.

In addition, earlier entrepreneurs could not participate in the Program. Now, in connection with the removal of restrictions, the number of microloans issued will increase significantly. Work is also underway to create microfinance organizations (MFIs) in all regions of Kazakhstan.

Today at the meeting chaired by Prime Minister of the Republic of Kazakhstan Bakytzhan Sagintayev, as part of the consideration of the progress of implementation of the Five Social Initiatives, Minister of Education and Science Yerlan Sagadiyev reported on the ongoing work on improving the accessibility and quality of higher education, as well as improving the living conditions of students.

According to the Minister, in 2018 the number of grants has been increased by 20 thousand. The total number of grants allocated annually in the country reached 69 thousand: 53 thousand students are studying for undergraduate studies, 13 thousand - for master's programs, over 2 thousand - for PhD programs.

Y. Sagadiyev noted that 50% of all grantees are trained in technical specialties (34 thousand). Among them are such relevant to the labor market areas as information and communication technologies, cyber security, radio engineering and electronics. 5 thousand grants are provided for rural youth under the Serpіn program. About 20% of grants are aimed at training teachers, including those with enhanced linguistic competence.

In all universities, the cost of grants in technical and agricultural specialties became equal to the cost of grants in national universities and reached 635 thousand tenge. Thus, according to the Minister of Education and Science, the task of the Head of State on the allocation of grants and the increase in value has been fully executed.

A number of additional measures are being taken to ensure accessibility of higher education.

First, the UNT is held 4 times a year. The first test was conducted in January 2019. More than 35 thousand school graduates took part in it. They were given the opportunity in February to enroll in a university for training on a fee basis.

Secondly, according to the adopted changes in the Law “On Education”, a new model of admission to Graduate courses is being introduced in the same vein as undergraduate education. The granting of an educational grant will be made on the basis of the results of comprehensive testing with the provision of the possibility of choosing a university for training to applicants themselves.

Y. Sagadiyev also reported that the Ministry is continuing work on the introduction of new places in the dormitories. In 2019, it is planned to commission 5000 places.

“To date, in 3.5 months, we received 20 applications for 11 144 beds. We have concluded 12 contracts for 6556 beds. Most of them are already under construction. In addition to this, by the end of this month, we plan to conclude 8 more contracts for 4588 beds. These are facilities that will be commissioned next year,” – Y. Sagadiyev said.

The Minister of Education and Science noted that from the moment of the project implementation, educational organizations at their own expense and without using the state order mechanism introduced 10 facilities for 2780 beds.

In general, there are all conditions for commissioning 75 thousand new beds by the end of 2022. In particular, 170 land plots have been defined, 121 of which belong to educational organizations, 49 plots are allocated by Akimats. 27 organizations have developed design estimates documentation (DED), 62 are developing. A bank of already developed and standard design and estimate documentation has been created, which can be used by new project participants.

For 107 projects, sources of financing were identified: 50 - at their own expense, 57 - with the involvement of investors. The issue of involving the private sector in the mechanism is the most pressing and requires additional incentive measures. In particular, the Ministry of Education and Science of the Republic of Kazakhstan proposes subsidizing the interest rates of developers as part of extending the implementation of the Business Roadmap until 2025. At the same time, on the part of local executive bodies it is important to speed up the work on the allocation of land plots.

“In general, the implementation of the Third Initiative of the Head of State is ongoing within the framework of the planned deadlines, is under constant monitoring and will be continued,” - Y. Sagadiyev concluded.

Today’s Government meeting chaired by Prime Minister of the Republic of Kazakhstan Bakytzhan Sagintayev covered the progress of the implementation of the Five Social Initiatives of the President.

Chairman of the National Bank Daniyar Akishev reported on the implementation of the “7-20-25” Program. This program is aimed at improving the living conditions of Kazakhstani citizens. The terms of participation were approved in the middle of last year. In order to develop the mortgage market, legislative changes were introduced, a program operator, the Baspana organization, was created. The program was launched in July 2018. Eight banks participate in the program.

As of January 17th of this year, 4350 applications for a loan amounting to 52 billion tenge were approved under the “7-20-25” program.

“The progress of the work carried out is regularly reported in the media, social networks, there is a 24-hour call center. The territorial branches of the National Bank and the mortgage organization Baspana hold meetings with the population and labor collectives in all regions. Outreach coverage reached 6 million citizens,” – D. Akishev said.

To update the Program, the National Bank of Kazakhstan offers a number of measures:

- Housing construction under the Program in prospective regions, taking into account the demand for housing, demographic growth, population migration;

- Giving local executive bodies the right to raise financing for housing construction at the expense of the Baspana Organization;

- The sale of housing built under the Nurly Zher State Program, equally to investors and those on the waiting list through Zhilstroysberbank, and to all citizens through mortgage loans under the 7-20-25 Program;

- The issuance of housing certificates should be selective and allowed only at the start of the Program;

- The Government’s study of the possibility of granting the right to participate in the Program to citizens who have housing by right of ownership.

First Deputy Minister of National Economy Ruslan Dalenov reported on the work being done to ensure the reduction of the tax burden to increase the wages of low-wage workers as part of the implementation of the second direction of the Five Social Initiatives.

“All the preparatory work has been done and completed. Legislative changes came into force on January 1, 2019, outreach work was carried out among taxpayers, compensation to local budgets is provided, the norms are already applied,” – R. Dalenov said.

Regarding legislative changes, the First Deputy Minister said that the Tax Code has been changed with regards to the order for those who have wages below 63,125 tenge. For them, the tax burden has already been reduced 10 times and about 2 million workers will receive additional income of up to 15 thousand tenge per year.

Regarding compensation to local budgets, it was noted that changes will entail losses of local budgets. In this regard, these losses were reviewed and supported at the meeting of the Republic’s Budgetary Commission. The National Budget incorporates transfers. Thus, revenues of local budgets are not reduced due to benefits.

R. Dalenov also reported that all employers are familiar with the changes, outreach work has been conducted among the population.

The second initiative also tasked to explore the possibility of introducing a progressive scale of individual income tax. According to the First Deputy Minister, international experience was studied and a detailed analysis of the current situation in the payment of hired labor was carried out.

In general, according to the Ministry of National Economy, the order to reduce the tax burden on low-paid workers has been executed.

Today’s Government meeting chaired by the Prime Minister of the Republic of Kazakhstan Bakytzhan Sagintayev focused on the issue of the development of “e-government” and the provision of public services.

In the Address to the People of Kazakhstan “Growing Welfare of Kazakh Citizens: Increase in Income and Quality of Life”, the Head of State commissioned to digitalize 90% of all public services by 2020.

To date, the Register of public services consists of 741 items. As the Minister of Information and Communication D. Abayev reported, only 454 or 61% are available in digital form. At the same time, 165 public services are available exclusively in digital form. Among them, almost half are licenses and permits, as well as business subsidization services. This was done to eliminate administrative barriers to business. Over the past year, 64 new public services have been digitalized.

The main tool for the provision of electronic public services is the e-government portal. Currently, more than 8.5 million users are registered on e-GOV. In 2018, 30 million public services were provided. 588 public services in need of optimization were identified. It was mandatory to consider the possibility of their digitalization, shortening the issuance period, the list of documents, the possibility of rendering in composite or proactive form, eliminating redundant procedures and approvals. Following the results of the work, 141 public services are planned to be digitalized, and for 447 public services, measures are being taken to reduce the time and documents required from citizens.

For example, it is planned to digitalize the issuance of the so-called "sick-list". In addition to convenience, this contributes to the formation of an electronic database on the health of the nation. It is planned that Big Data technologies will allow for more effective implementation of health and pharmacology policies. In addition, the two public services “Child transfer to foster care” and “Assignment of cash payments to foster carers” were combined.

According to the Ministry of Information and Communication, it is impossible to achieve 100% automation of public services. Since there are services that require the mandatory presence and participation of a specialist, for example: examination and provision of medical and pedagogical advice to children with disabilities. For such services, the possibility of maximum optimization of processes and terms will be worked out.

In total, as part of recommendations of the Interdepartmental Commission under the Government, 486 road maps have been approved so far. By the end of 2018, 76 public services were optimized.

Following the results of 2018, the following procedures were simplified:

First, the filing of an electronic application for obtaining a driver's license and registration of a vehicle has been implemented. Since the launch, these services have been used more than 23 thousand times. Previously, the registration of transport took 6 hours, now - 2 hours. Registration for the sale of transport takes only 20 minutes. No need to submit documents on paper. The possibility of delivering finished documents and a license plate to a house has been implemented through Kazpost. In addition, citizens are given the opportunity to choose any of the state numbers already manufactured.

Second, the ability to check the availability of administrative fines on a single resource is implemented.

Thirdly, it is planned to continue work on the provision of public services in a proactive mode. Specifically – services for the confirmation of disability, the appointment of benefits and social benefits, the provision of prosthetic and orthopedic care, and so on. This will allow comprehensively providing the listed social services without the need for people with disabilities to visit the PSC or service providers.

With regards to the development of the mobile e-government application mGov, it is noted that today only 87 services are available through mGov. There are 1.3 million users of the application. In 2018, 3.6 million services were provided through mGov.

As part of the improvement of the regulatory framework, a bill was drafted providing for more than 500 amendments to 43 Acts and 10 Codes aimed at optimizing 121 public services. Among them: optimization of marriage registration services (will reduce the period of registration of marriage from 1 month to 3 working days), automatic return of amounts overpaid by taxpayers, cancellation of over 3.5 thousand standards and regulations for regulating the provision of public services, introduction of the concept of a “pilot project”. As a result of the measures taken, in 2019, 80% will be automated, and in 2020 - 90% of public services. The number of documents submitted in paper form will be reduced by 110 million.

Recall, following a study of the level of development of e-government conducted by the UN, in 2018 Kazakhstan took the 39th place in the group with a high level of development. At the same time, by the level of maturity, the Kazakhstani electronic government is at the e-GOV 2.0 stage. Currently, within the framework of the state program “Digital Kazakhstan”, work is underway to move to the e-GOV 3.0 stage, mastered by such countries as South Korea, Australia, Singapore, the United Kingdom, Denmark and Sweden. It should be noted that the e-GOV 3.0 stage is characterized by the introduction of such elements as “Artificial Intelligence”, “Proactive Services”, “Digitized Vital Moments”, “Internet of Things” and others. In Kazakhstan, according to the Information Ministry, a full transition to the e-GOV 3.0 stage is planned by 2021.

Chairman of the Board of the NJSC “State Corporation “Government for Citizens” A. Ospanov reported that out of 741 services contained in the Register of public services, 598 services are available through the State Corporation. 325 front-offices, 16 specialized PSC with 6 sectors in Kazakhstan, including 4 sectors in Almaty and 2 sectors in the Turkestan region, 70 mobile PSCs and 1656 branches of Kazpost JSC take part in their rendering. At the same time, in the framework of increasing the level of use of services by citizens in digital form, a full-scale transformation of the existing front offices is being carried out with the introduction of the 60/40 principle, instead of the previously adopted 20/80, where 80% of jobs were occupied by employees engaged in the process of receiving applications from citizens. In addition, to simplify the process of obtaining public services, a new mechanism for confirming the identity of service recipients was launched. Now citizens can get services using face recognition or fingerprint, thereby eliminating the need to use EDS or presenting an identity card.

During the meeting, the Akims of Akmola region M. Murzalin, East Kazakhstan region - D. Akhmetov, Kostanay region - A. Mukhambetov, Akims of Astana city B. Sultanov, Almaty - B. Baibek made speeches on improving the quality of public services provided

Following the consideration of the issue, Prime Minister B. Sagintayev instructed to improve the quality of the work being done. It is noted that only 4639 vehicles passed online registration, only 18 thousand people received a driver's license. Considering the usefulness of these services for the population, it is indicated that the reason for the low rates is poor outreach work. B. Sagintayev instructed to provide explanatory work on the digitalization of the public services sector, as well as to provide the population with the necessary digital skills on a regular basis.

Along with this, it is necessary to improve the work on the provision of public services in digital form. In particular, to increase the number of government services available in the mGov mobile application, using a one-time password without an EDS, on the basis of a single application, and also ensure timely adoption of the necessary legislative changes. It is important for the people. In this regard, it was entrusted to designate target indicators within the project office with specific deadlines for converting public services to digital format.

B. Sagintayev noted that issues of development of public services are under special control of the Head of State and are included in the State Program "Digital Kazakhstan". Every year the Government reports to the President of the Republic of Kazakhstan. It is also necessary to prepare a report on the work done in the previous year. The Ministry of Information and Communication, together with concerned government agencies and the State Corporation, are instructed to draw up within a month a list of public services to be converted into digital form in the current year. All central and local government agencies are instructed to take measures for the timely implementation of this list, to develop appropriate road maps, to ensure effective interagency cooperation, and system integration.

In addition, the Ministry of Information and Communication and the State Corporation need to form an effective system for monitoring and analyzing the processes of rendering public services.
