On behalf of the Head of State, 400 billion tenge was allocated to support the manufacturing industry under the lending program. The development and support of business projects in the economy of simple things will allow to create 16 thousand jobs by 2025 and reduce the share of product imports from 59% to 37%. This will bring 1.1 trillion tenge of taxes to the budget.

According to the Minister of Industry and Infrastructure Development Roman Sklyar, special attention in the economy of simple things is paid to the development of the construction, light and furniture industry.

“To solve these problems, roadmaps for the development of these industries have been developed. They envisage measures to develop the resource base, protect the domestic market by improving the measures of customs administration and technical regulation, create national standards aimed at improving the quality of goods and services,” said Sklyar.

In order to increase the sales of products of these industries and reload existing enterprises, in regulated purchases, an annual increase in the share of local content by 20% is additionally proposed. At the same time, the supplier will have to confirm its production capacity with an Industrial Certificate.

In addition, measures will be taken to increase the representation of domestic goods in retail chains, to provide enterprises with highly qualified personnel, to attract investments in these industries to implement projects using advanced technologies.

In general, the roadmaps provide for the implementation of more than 150 events, according to which, in the medium term, the share of local content for manufactured goods will increase by more than 50%, the quality of products will increase and the volume of counterfeit products will decrease.

“The implementation of the proposed measures will allow to increase the production of building materials, products of light and furniture industry by 73 billion tenge annually,” said Sklyar.

Minister of Agriculture Saparkhan Omarov, in turn, reported that the main task of the agro-industrial complex is to ensure food security, the most important component of which is the food industry. 200 billion tenge was allocated for lending to the agro-industrial complex. Credit funds will be provided for the production of about 118 priority types of processed agricultural products. Of the 200 billion tenge, 100 billion tenge will be spent on loans to projects in the processing of agricultural products, and 100 billion tenge — on agricultural production, which serves as raw materials for food and other manufacturing industries.

In order to reduce the credit load on the subjects of the agro-industrial complex, the interest rate on loans issued will be subsidized. The Ministry of Agriculture have made necessary changes to the rules for subsidizing interest rates.

  • development of raw materials base;
  • technical and technological re-equipment of enterprises;
  • development of enterprise infrastructure;

The inflows will increase production growth by 25 billion tenge annually, which will ensure the dynamics of the industry (food and raw materials production) up to 6%,” said Omarov.

Brazil’s version of Trump: why is it a «wake-up call» for the world?

<p style="text-align: justify;">A racist, a homophobe, a misogynist, a pro-torturer. Because of the profane outbursts and verbal abuse, he has earned such an image and was even considered as a political clown. Once he insulted lawmaker claiming that she was too ugly to be worth of raping. What is more, he said that he’d rather have a dead son than a gay one. Therefore, analysts concluded that Brazil has elected the most extremist president among democratic countries. So why did Brazil decide to make «really radical shift»? How did such an «extreme» and «unpleasant» figure become a president?<br /> </p>
