The draft plan of the Cabinet of Ministers' legislative work plan for 2024 was considered at the regular Government session of the Republic of Kazakhstan under the chairmanship of the Prime Minister of the Republic of Kazakhstan Alikhan Smailov.
Minister of Justice Azamat Yeskaraev reported that next year it is planned to develop bills aimed at the development of digital technologies, social sphere, intellectual property, innovation, space industry and others. At the same time, two documents - the Digital Code and the bill on endowment funds will be aimed at regulating previously unregulated social relations.
Thus, the Digital Code envisages the creation of a modern legal framework that meets the best international practices and takes into account the needs of the market and the interests of citizens in this area. In turn, the draft law on endowment funds is aimed at the development of education and science in accordance with the requirements of the time and ensuring sustainable financing of universities.
According to the Minister, a number of draft laws are derived from the Concept of Legal Policy until 2030. This includes the improvement of legislation on subsoil use.
At the same time, the development of a draft law on anti-money laundering and terrorism financing follows from the Concept of Financial Monitoring Development for 2022-2026.
In general, the draft plan has been prepared on the basis of instructions of the President, the leadership of the Government, strategic documents, proposals of state bodies and is aimed at solving urgent public problems.
As Prime Minister noted, for the next year the Government provides for the development of 16 draft laws, 8 of which are aimed at the implementation of the instructions of the Head of State. It is also planned to submit 4 independent bills to the Parliament.
"Among them I would like to emphasize the draft of the new Digital Code. It will define unified approaches in the field of digitalization taking into account domestic experience and best world practices," Alikhan Smailov said.
In conclusion, he instructed the Government Apparatus to ensure that the draft Plan is submitted to the Head of State for approval.#Alikhan Smailov #The Prime Minister of the Republic of Kazakhstan #Government session #Legislations #Ministry of Justice
