“Elbasy Nursultan Nazarbayev at an expanded meeting of the faction of the Nur Otan party set the task to ensure economic growth.

The lagging akimats indicated the need for comprehensive measures to correct the situation with problematic indicators.

The prime minister emphasized that in order to ensure high-quality and sustainable economic growth, it is necessary to focus on attracting investment, creating jobs, increasing productivity and improving the welfare of citizens.
