Senate Speaker Maulen Ashimbayev held a number of meetings with the public, elders, youth and deputies of maslikhats of Akmola region. On the agenda are tasks to implement the instructions of the Head of State, announced in the Address and at an expanded meeting of the Government, the Senate's assistance to the development of the region, as well as the interaction of the Chamber with maslikhats.

The key topics for discussion with deputies of the maslikhats of the region and representatives of the public are the implementation of political, economic and social reforms, as well as the prospects for the development of the region. According to the Speaker of the Senate, comprehensive joint work is important to achieve all these goals. This approach is the key to the qualitative economic development of the country and the growth of the welfare of citizens.

"At an expanded meeting of the Government, President Kassym-Jomart Tokayev outlined priority tasks for the development of the socio-economic sphere, improving the effectiveness of budget and tax policy. They should be the focus of deputies' attention and taken into account in their work, including in the development of the Tax Code. Financing of agriculture will be consistently increased.  Given the pace of development of this area in the Akmola region, this initiative is very important for the residents of the region. The reform of the social sphere initiated by the Head of State will also require focused work. All government agencies should work together in these areas to achieve their goals," the Speaker of the Senate said in his speech.

At the same time, Maulen Ashimbayev focused on important aspects of economic liberalization. Among them are the rejection of excessive state interference in economic processes, changes in the public procurement system, PPP, and regulation of the construction industry. The participants of the meeting also discussed the initiatives of the Head of State relevant to the region regarding the repair of roads of national importance and infrastructure.

"Akmola region is of particular importance for the development of the country's economy and the provision of agricultural products to the capital. Housing and social facilities, including schools in rural areas, are being intensively built in the region. There are also good indicators in the health sector. However, along with the achievements in the region, there are also a number of problems. The issue of modernization of engineering and energy infrastructure is relevant. There are also environmental problems of the Shchuchinsk-Borovskaya resort area. In this direction, we, as the Chamber representing the interests of the regions, intend to strengthen communication with maslikhats and contribute to solving topical issues," said Maulen Ashimbayev.

During the meeting, the Speaker of the Senate also called on fellow deputies of the maslikhats of the region to actively participate in legislative work, Senate events: Parliamentary hearings, Government hours, round tables and field meetings, which are aimed at discussing and developing conceptual proposals to address certain issues. Maulen Ashimbayev also noted the work of such platforms for cooperation operating in the Senate as the Parliamentary Commission on Sustainable Development Goals, established on behalf of the Head of State, the Onir deputy group and the Council for Interaction with Maslikhats.

The role of youth in the implementation of reforms and the development of the region's potential was discussed by senators during a meeting with representatives of active youth in the region. In this regard, the Speaker of the Senate stressed that the country is systematically supporting young Kazakhstanis, comprehensive reforms are being implemented, strategic programs and government projects are being developed.

"At the initiative of the Head of State, all necessary conditions are being created in Kazakhstan for young people in the fields of education, career growth, and housing. A lot of work is being done to promote the initiatives of young entrepreneurs in the region and systematically address their employment issues. The Presidential Youth Personnel Reserve opens up unique opportunities for talented, educated and literate youth. Selection for the local personnel reserve will begin soon in the Akmola region. I am sure that the youth of the Akmola region will make a significant contribution both to the development of the region and the country," the Speaker of the Senate said, addressing the participants of the meeting, and informed about the legislative norms ensuring the presence of youth in the Mazhilis and maslikhats.

Maulen Ashimbayev also spoke about the projects that are being implemented in the Senate to support active youth – the School of Analytics and the Club of Young Experts, whose goal is to open up new opportunities for young talents. It should be noted that just the day before in the city of Kokshetau, members of the Club of Young Experts at the Senate held a meeting with the expert community of the Akmola region, at which issues of regional development were discussed, as well as the possibilities of interaction between the expert community of the region and the Club. All this is a planned result of the Senate's comprehensive work on interaction with the regions, including work with the local expert community.

In addition, the senators met with students and faculty of the Shokan Ualikhanov University. We got acquainted with the activities of the oil extraction plant for processing soybeans, sunflower seeds and rapeseed of Bota-2015 LLP and Makinskaya Poultry Farm LLP.
