The new information system was presented at the regular meeting of the Investment Promotion Council, chaired by First Deputy Prime Minister of the Republic of Kazakhstan, Roman Sklyar, reports.

The National Digital Investment Platform involves the creation of an information system for the comprehensive support of investment projects. It is expected that it will be equally useful for all parties - entrepreneurs, representatives of government agencies, financial institutions, and the quasi-sector.

The functionality of the digital platform will fully cover all processes, including public services available to investors in the Republic of Kazakhstan. In matters of attracting investment, digitalization of public services is one of the priority and urgent tasks of the government. It was emphasized that the National Investment Platform is developed primarily for investors, and it should contain all the proposed support measures and be as user-friendly as possible.

It is expected that the National Investment Platform will not only simplify many processes but also ensure their transparency, significantly increasing the country's investment attractiveness. In this regard, government agencies have been instructed to speed up the completion of the commissioning of the platform and enter all data on investment projects into the system.

The meeting of the Council on Attracting Investments also considered the projects planned for implementation in the spheres of transport, logistics, healthcare, and tourism. Thus, within the framework of the investment potential of the transport sector, the need for further development of the "concession" mechanism was emphasized, citing the example of the Big Almaty Ring Road project. Additionally, there was an emphasis on a multiple increase in the pool of projects in civil aviation and railway transport.

Consideration and instructions were given on individual investment projects in the healthcare sector, focusing on the localization of medical equipment production, expansion of biotechnological drug production, and the construction of clinics.

In the regional context, the office of Ulytau region considered activities to attract investment — a pool of 19 investment projects has been formed, with plans to create over 1700 jobs.
