"All over the world, cooperation is a powerful tool for the development of labor productivity, business. Therefore, under the current state program, as part of its actualization, we approached the issue of developing cooperation as a subprogram, one of the tools that will enable us to achieve the task set by the Head of State — to increase labor productivity and export of processed products 2.5 times in five years," Arman Yevniev said.
Meanwhile, according to the vice minister, the true essence of the cooperative — to make sure that the cooperative member receives income, increasing its labor productivity. If he produces more with the same resources, on the same plot of land, with the same amount of livestock, he will make more money, develop his business.
According to the speaker, a special web portal will be created to service the activities of cooperatives, where they will have to register.
The site will provide an opportunity to automate the collection of information and monitoring of cooperative data, evaluate the results, allow for keeping records of workplaces and labor productivity of each participant. Here, the digital literacy training for cooperative members will be organized. The establishment of a rating between cooperatives and participants will contribute to the growth of their competitiveness.
The information system will become a tool for participants in agricultural production cooperatives to motivate, analyze, train, manage and evaluate the result of the activity.
"Now we plan to invite IT-business to participate in the state program of agriculture digitalization, one of the elements of which will be the creation of a portal. In addition, we actively involve Atameken NCE," A. Yevniev said.
