The head of state declared the income and quality of life of the people the main criteria
The President of Kazakhstan, Nursultan Nazarbayev, outlined the country’s development priorities for 2019, ortcom.kz reports with reference to Kazinform.
Let’s talk about the current year. You are all literate people and notice that the global economy is slowing down, the fall in world trade, and the sanctions and trade wars continue. This cannot but affect us, because we are in the global economy. Therefore, our task is to be prepared for various scenario developments in order to ensure the necessary economic growth rates and not reduce them, said Nursultan Nazarbayev, summing up the expanded meeting of the Government of the Republic of Kazakhstan.
According to him, there is an opportunity and need to protect the welfare of banks.
Last year I began a systematic review of state and social policy. The first steps have been taken – these are the five social initiatives. The recent Message and the social package for young people, which I put into action, send huge funds to increase the welfare of all Kazakhstanis. Today, not all countries can afford such an increase in social spending and the kind of work that we do, you know that. Therefore, these state funds should be used efficiently, they need control, the Head of State noted.
Nursultan Nazarbayev also outlined the main criteria for the development of Kazakhstan as a whole. Two indicators – income and quality of life – I declare the main criteria for the development of the state. Everything � the economy and everything we do � is ultimately for the people. The work of each minister and akim must be assessed by the implementation of these indicators, concluded the President.
