Summing up the results of the meeting, the Prime Minister of Kazakhstan noted that the modernization of the economy of Kazakhstan, identified by the President of the Republic of Kazakhstan N. Nazarbayev in the Message “The Third Modernization of Kazakhstan: Global Competitiveness”, will be accompanied by the appearance of significant opportunities for citizens.
At the same time, the digitalization of the economy, the automation of production, on the one hand, will require highly qualified specialists, especially in the field of IT technologies. On the other hand, these processes will lead to the release of part of the labor force. Therefore, the Government is already working to create conditions for a controlled flow of workers. No less important are the issues of creating jobs and increasing people’s access to business.
B.Sagintayev emphasized that in general, to achieve all these tasks in the new Program for the Development of Productive Employment and Mass Entrepreneurship, the issues of employment are being transferred into a new plane. And if earlier the task was only to find a job, now it is a question of productive and effective employment.
Also Bakytzhan Sagintayev recalled that the Head of State set the task – to change the role of the education system, since it should become the central link of the new model of economic growth.
In this regard, as part of the State program for the development of education, both its infrastructure and its content are updated.
In addition, B.Sagintayev emphasized that profound changes are also being made in the healthcare sphere. Thus, compulsory social health insurance is introduced, which is designed to significantly improve the level of medical care for citizens from January 1, 2018.
In addition, the construction of hospitals, polyclinics, and feldsher points will continue, and the development of a network of primary health care and private offices of narrow specialists will be studied.
In conclusion, the Prime Minister noted that in the social sphere there are big tasks that the Government will solve jointly with civil society. However, responsibility for the implementation of these tasks lies with local executive bodies, since it is on how the work on the ground will be built that their success will depend.
Following the results of the meeting B.Sagintayev instructed the responsible state bodies and the regional mayor’s office to take all the issues raised for control.
