Mamin initiated the creation of the Council for the Development of the Digital Economy.

“The Council could become a platform for the development of mutually beneficial partnership for the introduction in our countries of such new technological elements as 5G, Smart Cities, big data, blockchain, digital assets, as well as the construction and deployment of data centers, the development of data transit, participation in the global market for digital services,” said the prime minister of Kazakhstan.
