Olzhas Bektenov introduced to digital tools to support domestic commodity producers and forecast flood situation

Digital tools to support domestic producers have been developed on the instructions of the Prime Minister.

In particular, the developed systems allow to monitor the work of each production enterprise, online to identify facts of infringement of their interests by state bodies. 

The goal is to give an additional impetus to the development of Kazakhstani production to reduce the share of imports in the country's market. 

Taking into account the current flood situation in a number of regions of Kazakhstan, a prototype of the system for flood modelling and forecasting of reservoir filling was considered. As part of the development of the prototype, algorithms for modelling and calculating water flow were created, and pilot tests were carried out on several river sections. The digital tool will make it possible to calculate regulated and unregulated drainage, as well as to map flooding zones at a given water level.

As a result of expert discussions of the presented digital solutions, Prime Minister Olzhas Bektenov approved the projects and instructed to start implementation in the pilot mode.

Prime Minister instructed to launch as soon as possible a service to receive applications for compensation for flood damage, as well as to keep records and control the implementation of flood control measures in online format through available CCTV cameras.

"The Head of State in his Address set a strategically important task to transform Kazakhstan into an IT-country. For correct management decisions it is necessary to possess high quality operational information and use new technologies. It is necessary to scale the proposed approaches to other sectors of the economy. All tools and information are available. It is necessary to properly build data exchange and integration of systems," Olzhas Bektenov emphasised.

The Minister of Digital Development, Innovation and Aerospace Industry, Bagdat Mussin, has been instructed to ensure timely updating of data and accelerated introduction of digital tools in all spheres of life.
