Today at the meeting of the Government of the Republic of Kazakhstan, in the course of summing up the implementation of the Nurly Zher State Program for 9 months of this year, Prime Minister Bakytzhan Sagintayev gave specific instructions for the further development of housing construction.

Having heard the reports of relevant Ministries and a number of Akims, B. Sagintayev noted that in the first 9 months of this year, there was growth in all key areas of the Nurly Zher state program. At the same time, the Prime Minister drew the attention of the Government members to a number of key aspects.

First, the use of funds allocated for the implementation of the State Program. According to the Ministry of Investments and Development of the Republic of Kazakhstan, in a number of regions, according to the results of 9 months, there was a decrease in the rate of disbursement of funds compared to last year and planned values.

Considering the high level of housing construction set last year, when a record 11.2 million m2 of housing was commissioned, the Prime Minister recalled that this year’s volume was 12.1 million m2.

In this regard, the regional Akims were instructed to take all necessary measures to ensure the commissioning of the planned volumes of housing, as well as the effective utilization of the allocated funds.

The second is the connection of engineering communications to the construction sites of both multi-unit and individual housing. Almost half of all budget funds allocated in the current year for the implementation of the State Program are provided for these purposes. At the same time, B. Sagintayev noted that in a number of regions there are facts when already built houses were not handed over due to the lack of necessary infrastructure.

With regards to individual housing, over 40 thousand land plots should be provided with communications this year. However, in 9 months only 40% were provided. Thus, regional Akims were instructed to take the matter under control and ensure the execution of instructions in the next two months.

Particular attention was paid to the task set by the Head of State in the Address to the People of Kazakhstan on the development in 2019 of the new Nurly Zher State Program, taking into account aspects of regional development and the inclusion of new directions. The Ministry of Investment and Development of Kazakhstan is charged to take into account all aspects of housing and housing-and-communal services during the process of developing the new state program, as well as to supplement it with new directions.
