Bakytzhan Sagintayev instructs to intensify work on implementation of the President’s Five Social Initiatives
Each initiative of the Head of State is aimed at improving the well-being of Kazakhstanis. This is a national priority � raising the quality of life of the people.
On the first initiative, the Prime Minister noted the importance of the quality implementation of the 7�20�25 Program and the importance of the work of local executive bodies in its implementation.
Sagintayev drew the attention of the Government members to the need to intensify the work. All possibilities for building houses under the 7�20�25 Program are available, financing issues have been resolved. In some regions, the initiative is implemented at a high level, however, low rates of work can be traced. This is due to the dependence of the pace of construction on demand. In this regard, akimats of regions are instructed to conduct explanatory work with construction companies and banks.
On the second initiative, it was noted that all the preparatory work was carried out. The necessary changes have been made to the current legislation to reduce the tax burden to increase the wages of low-paid workers. Work will begin January 1, 2019.
Within the framework of the third initiative, Sagintayev instructed the Ministry of Education and Science, together with the regional akimats, to step up work to provide students with dormitory places. The Ministry of Finance needs to gradually increase funding for the construction of hostels.
On the implementation of the fourth initiative, the Prime Minister instructed the Ministry of Labor and Social Protection of the Population, together with the regional akimats and Atameken National Chamber of Entrepreneurs, to resolve all open questions within a month to get microcredit for entrepreneurs.
The population of the country is waiting for the gas supply. In this regard, as part of the fifth initiative, the large-scale construction of the Saryarka gas pipeline should begin as scheduled and be completed in time.
