Minister of Digital Development, Innovation and Aerospace Industry Bagdat Mussin and First Vice Minister of Industry and Infrastructure Development Kairbek Uskenbayev reported on the progress of work on the creation of an information system for the Unified State Cadastre of Real Estate.

The Cadastre has consolidated 226 separate databases of the Automated Information System of the State Land Cadastre and the state database "Register of Real Estate". Access to information about the land fund and real estate objects is provided through the Public Cadastral Map, which works online and is currently 93.6% full.

The project will reduce the time required to obtain information about the subsoil and fully realize the investment potential in this area.
