Kassym-Jomart Tokayev noted that digitalization is aimed not only at improving one industry or sphere of activity but also at serious changes in the economy and public life. Therefore, he recalled the need to create a unified monitoring system that unites all state bodies.

The President stressed that the goal set for the Ministry of digital development, innovation and aerospace industry to introduce advanced and modern technologies has not yet been achieved. According to the Head of state, this work lacks coherence and coordination.

The President noted that in the era of the information "boom", digital public services should be intuitive and accessible even for the non-advanced user. In addition, he pointed to the need to use the "focus groups" tool, consisting of different categories of citizens, to study public opinion before launching certain services.

The head of state instructed the Government to develop a set of regulatory and incentive measures to expand the industry 4.0 project.

The President considers it necessary to make appropriate changes to legislative acts and regulations of state bodies. The government, the offices of the houses of Parliament and other state bodies should take the necessary measures in this direction.

The head of state focused attention on another important issue – the digitization of the regions.

The President also pointed to the need to solve the problem of the lack of high-quality Internet, especially in rural areas.

Kasym-Jomart Tokayev noted that Kazakhstan still remains technologically dependent on foreign developments and technologies. Therefore, the Government was instructed to intensify work on developing the potential of Astana Hub, "Alatau" and Nazarbayev University to develop and implement the necessary IT solutions.

In conclusion, Kassym-Jomart Tokayev emphasized that digitalization is a matter of national importance and directly affects the economic development of the country.
