Since the launch of the program, its projects have been producing products amounting to 8 trillion tenge. This is a hallmark achievement for the country. We are creating 500 types of products that we have never produced before,” – the President of Kazakhstan said.

The Head of State drew attention to the results of the implementation of the Nurly Zhol Infrastructure Development Program.

“Construction and reconstruction of 5 thousand km of roads of national importance have been carried out since 2010. Another 4500 km will be introduced before 2020. Thus, now 85% of National highways are in good condition. Roads have been commissioned for the Western Europe-Western China project and the Astana-Temirtau, Almaty-Kapshagai, Beineu-Shetpe and Kokshetau-Petropavlovsk routes. In addition, the largest bridge in Central Asia has been built across the Irtysh River. 75 thousand people were involved in the implementation of these projects.

At the same time, the President of Kazakhstan mentioned certain issues that require increased attention from the Ministry’s leadership.
