As part of preparations for the meeting on the resettlement of citizens from the labor-surplus regions to the labor-deficit ones, members of the Onir parliamentary group continue their visits to the regions. Today, senators Yerik Sultanov, Alimzhan Kurtayev, and Altynbek Nukhuly have visited Ekibastuz city of the Pavlodar region.
During their trip, the deputies visited the micro-districts of the city, which are considered as a potential area for the construction of houses for the resettlers. Afterward, a meeting was held with the participation of the city activists to discuss the issues of resettlement arrangements.
“Despite the existing challenges, about 9 thousand people have already arrived in the Pavlodar region. Thus, the settling rate of resettlers is 97%. This is evidence that the local authorities provide the necessary conditions for the arriving citizens,” senator Yerik Sultanov noted during the meeting
Senators paid close attention to the problems that regions are currently experiencing in the implementation of the program of voluntary resettlement.
“Today, we discuss the possibility of increasing the resettlement quota from 2 thousand to 10 thousand families per year. And to implement it through group resettlement by 5-20 families to one populated area to make adaptation conditions easier,” Alimzhan Kurtayev said.
Also, in the course of the meeting, First Deputy Chairman of the World Association of Kazakhs Zautbek Turisbekov made a presentation of the Asar pilot project to the regional activists, designed to relocate kandases from the south to the north of the country.
Apart from that, the senators learned about the progress of implementation of the instructions of the Head of State on the development of single-industry towns. Thus, during the meeting, the senators were presented with the Comprehensive Plan for the Development of Ekibastuz city until 2025.
