“Today Zhetysu region is developing dynamically and is the leader in terms of agricultural production. The share of processing industry in the region is the highest in the country – 86%. Almaty region is one of the leaders in human capital of Kazakhstan. They are young professionals, entrepreneurs, poets and writers, as well as representatives of labor collectives, who are contributing to the country’s development, “said Kassym-Zhomart Tokayev.

The President of Kazakhstan drew attention to the issues that need urgent decision.

“As in other regions, Almaty region still has problems with drinking water supply. The Akimat should develop and schedule work on construction and reconstruction of the water supply system, taking into account the perspective development of settlements, “the Head of State said.

Kassym-Zhomart Tokayev told about the problems of schools in emergency and three-shift schools and instructed the Government and akimat of the region to solve the problem of school construction by 2021.

“15.4 billion tenge has been allocated from the national budget for the construction of 14 schools in 2018-2019. But the region still needs 20 more schools. For this purpose it is necessary to allocate 29 billion tenge for 2020-2021. This is my job, “the President of Kazakhstan said.

He also urged young professionals to move from city to village, and stressed the need to create conditions for recruitment of young professionals within the program “With Diploma to Village”.

Besides, Kassym-Jomart Tokayev paid special attention to issues of housing provision for low-income people.

For young professionals and young families, housing construction should be actively carried out. The Akimat must launch the mechanism of issuing housing certificates covering the first installment of the program “7-20-25” on the basis of other regions, “the President of Kazakhstan said.

The main place attracting tourists here is Lake Alakol, with its healing properties. Last year only 2 million people were resting and the number of tourists increased by 20%. However, the level of service, transport, and hotel infrastructure are not critical. I instruct the Government, together with Akimat, to take comprehensive measures to improve sanitary zone infrastructure, “said Kassym-Jomart Tokayev.

The President of Kazakhstan emphasized the transport and logistics potential of the region and emphasized the importance of improving the quality of local roads.

“Almaty region is a strategic region. The region has enough potential to become a major transportation hub and logistics center in the country. Due to the completion of the Western Europe – Western China highway, the Almaty region has become a gateway to connecting Asia and Europe. In addition, 22% of the roads in the region are critical, and this is a problem. I charge the akim of the region to work on this issue systematically and develop a plan for gradual rehabilitation of the degraded roads till 2025, “the Head of State said.
