The President of Kazakhstan recalled the implementation of a new stage of social modernization, for the purpose of which almost 3.5 trillion tenge was directed, of which over 530 billion was allocated to support families with children and low-income citizens.

The hearing state is the lack of bureaucracy at its worst and the transparency of all procedures based on digitalization,” the Head of State emphasized.
