Chairman of the Board of Directors of Kazakhmys Holding Eduard Ogay reported to the President that on the basis of the national development plan of the Republic of Kazakhstan until 2025, together with the Akimat of the Karaganda region, a Program for the development of Zhezkazgan and Balkhash regions for 2020-2025 has been developed. The program provides for 3 main directions - improving the level of social services, improving infrastructure and economic development.

Kassym-Jomart Tokayev was told about the prospects of implementing projects on water supply, improving the quality of education, and stabilizing prices in the food market. Information was also provided on the fulfillment of the corporation's social obligations and the implementation of investment projects. The company conducted a sociological survey of residents of the regions of its presence and intends to create a comfortable level of living for them. The target for the development of Zhezkazgan and Balkhash regions will be the most developed region of the country – Almaty.

During the working visit, the Head of State was informed about the difficulties with the supply of high-quality drinking water in Zhezkazgan. To solve the problem, the reconstruction of the Uytas-Aidos water pipeline and the construction of a water pipeline at the Kozhamseit field are necessary. The President instructed the Government and the Akimat of the region to ensure the implementation of this project within a year and a half.

I think that you have correctly identified the priorities of research. Water supply is a serious social problem that needs to be solved. I spoke about this in my Message, and now the Government has an instruction in this regard. I think that the Government, together with the Akimat and with you, should solve this problem in the very near future, at most within a year and a half. We must provide clean drinking water to our citizens. I will monitor the progress of resolving this issue.

The President positively assessed the support of Kazakhmys Corporation for educational projects.

In fact, education is the future of our state. Here, of course, we need to pay priority attention to the training of our teachers

The Head of State also spoke about the increase in food prices and subsidies in agriculture.

This is, of course, a painful topic inherent in the entire world market. About 40-50 percent of all prices in the world have soared up. As for our country, the sharp increase in food prices is a consequence of systemic issues. No matter how we try to solve these issues operationally, nevertheless, the trend is on the face. We need a systematic solution to this problem. We import a significant part of our food, although agriculture is breaking all records in terms of subsidies. Other countries don't know what subsidies are. In any case, in this volume. Somewhere we spoiled people, somewhere we overlooked the facts of corruption. We need to deal with this problem very seriously. I have set a task for the Government, for the new Minister of Agriculture

During the event, considerable attention was paid to environmental issues and reducing emissions by large enterprises.

We have announced that in 2060 we will have zero carbonation. We must take into account the specifics of our economy and its structure. As you know, 70 percent of the energy balance is coal. We cannot close everything tomorrow and say that we have decarbonized. This also applies to your company. But we must definitely follow the course of decarbonization by 2060. Otherwise, we will remain on the sidelines of world development. This is a very delicate task that the Government and I, as the Head of State, will have to solve taking into account the interests of our main enterprises

Kassym–Jomart Tokayev

Summing up the results of the event, the President noted that the State, together with the flagships of the domestic industry, will have to continue active work in all the designated areas.
