Today, the Chairman of the Senate, Maulen Ashimbayev, arrived to the Mangistau region.
During his visit to this region, he got acquainted with the activities of Kaspiy Desalination Plant, which provides the population of the districts of the region with drinking water. As you know, the issue of drinking water is very relevant for the region. In this regard, the Speaker of the Senate drew attention to the need to build additional desalination facilities to solve this problem. The Speaker of the Senate stressed that the Head of State paid special attention to the issue of provision of the population with high-quality drinking water at the last expanded meeting of the Government.
Maulen Ashimbayev also raised the issues of drought and livestock mortality faced by farmers in a number of regions of the country, including in the Mangystau region. He noted that this issue is under special control of the President of the country Kassym-Jomart Tokayev and stressed that the Government and akims are taking comprehensive measures to support the affected farmers and rural residents.
"The President of the country instructed to use the Government's reserve to support farmers. The Government and Akims, jointly with Baiterek Holding, were instructed to urgently develop a set of necessary measures to provide farmers with feeding stuff. Implementation of all instructions of the Head of State will focus on stabilization of the situation and support the country's farmers," Maulen Ashimbayev said.
The Chairman of the Senate stressed that on behalf of the Head of State, the Government will take measures to allocate additional subsidies for feeding stuff, forage equipment and to provide preferential financing to farmers for the forward purchase of feeding stuff in prosperous regions.
Maulen Ashimbayev added that the drought is a natural phenomenon that will be repeated and therefore, as the President of the country stressed, systematic measures should be worked out in addition to operational measures to increase the feed supply of the industry.
During the trip, Maulen Ashimbayev also got acquainted with activities of fish and grain factories. During his visits to the facilities, he focused on the legislative work of the Senate and spoke about the laws adopted to support citizens and entrepreneurship during the pandemic.
