Deputy Prime Minister of the Republic of Kazakhstan Askar Zhumagaliyev and Akim of Almaty Bauyrzhan Baibek got acquainted with the progress of the implementation of projects launched under the economic digitalization program.

Thus, Chairman of the Committee on Legal Statistics and Special Accounts of the Prosecutor General's Office Baghdat Musin presented a pilot project "e-Fines", which allows significantly reducing the number of driver's documents.

According to Baghdat Musin, all the data about the driver, including the registration certificate and insurance policy, can now be checked using a tablet via the IIN. With the introduction of the system, it will be enough for motorists to present a driver's license to a police officer. The violators will be able to pay fines on the spot or via a mobile POS-terminal, and the payment will be automatically displayed in the payment system.

“Now filling-out reports will only take three actions: the input of the IIN, the license plate number of the car and the article of the offence. That is, now drivers do not need to carry a package of documents with them. Together with the local police, we have already tested this system,” – B. Musin said.

The Akim of Almaty supported the introduction of the "e-Fines" project in Almaty, instructing to find means to equip patrol services of the city with tablets and mobile thermal printers.

“Kazakhstan is undergoing digitalization to remove bureaucratic barriers and reduce corruption,” – Bauyrzhan Baibek said.

The next destination of the visit was the IT-neighborhood “Tech-Garden”, which is located on the territory of the autonomous cluster fund "Park of Innovative Technologies". 10 companies and 15 start-ups are located in the IT-neighborhood. All residents have access to modern technological platforms: IBM, ARM, Autodesk, 1C, etc.

Many participants of the project already compete with well-known foreign companies in the field of information support in engineering, oil-and-gas and metallurgy. They are also ready to offer their developments for the improvement of urban infrastructure.

Askar Zhumagaliyev expressed interest in the innovative component of projects and suggested conducting practical master classes with the participation of start-up companies both from the regions of Kazakhstan and the countries of the near abroad.

The Deputy Prime Minister and Akim of Almaty also got acquainted with the work of the information and logistics center of Kazpost JSC, which launched an automated line for sorting mail items with a productivity of 6545 items per hour. The line is designed for processing both international and domestic mails weighing up to 10 kg - parcels and international small packages.

According to the Chairman of the Board of Kazpost JSC Saken Sarsenov, the volume of internet purchases is growing at a rapid pace. Since the beginning of the year, more than nine million foreign parcels have arrived in Kazakhstan.

“If before August of this year we could process no more than 10 thousand parcels per day, with the launch of the sorting machine and mobile terminals, the processing speed increased tenfold. Thanks to the optimization of the technological process, parcel processing is performed around the clock. In addition, the automation of sorting allowed compiling bags with parcels in specific directions, which will accelerate the delivery of parcels to recipients,” – Saken Sarsenov said.

Thanks to the good foundation – developed logistics and an extensive network of branches, today Kazpost has the opportunity to build the entire necessary e-Commerce infrastructure. To help online stores, a fulfillment service was launched in Almaty, which includes storage, sorting, packaging and delivery of goods.

According to S. Sarsenov, Kazpost actively participates in transit projects, launching hubs for transit shipments from China to Europe and back through the territory of Kazakhstan. This will allow passing through Kazakhstan more than 20% of all transit volumes of parcels from China to Russia and Europe. If the growth in flows through Kazpost last year was 53% (10 million parcels, versus 6.5 million in 2015), this year the company expects growth of up to 17 million parcels.
