The Senate Committee on Economic Policy, Innovation Development and Entrepreneurship held an extended meeting where deputies discussed the bill “On Making Amendments and Additions to Some Legislative Acts of the Republic of Kazakhstan on Public Procurement, Procurement of Subsoil Users and Natural Monopoly Entities, Communications, Road Transport and Defense”.

After discussing these and several other innovations of the bill, the Committee deputies decided to pass the document to the House for consideration on second reading.
