Kazakhstan is set to develop GovStack, an integrated technological platform for e-government services in the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS), QazMonitor reports citing the Ministry of Digital and Space.

What happened: On March 26-27, the ITU Regional Development Forum for the CIS Region was held in Astana. National Information Technologies, together with the Eurasian Development Bank and the International Telecommunication Union, announced a strategic partnership to finance the GovStack project.

  • GovStack will serve as an integrated technological platform for e-gov services, improving the quality of public services and providing broader access to citizen-to-state interactions.

  • The project aims to increase the transparency of public administration in CIS member states.

This will improve the coverage, quality, and accessibility of Sustainable Development Goal-related social services in the region, thus accelerating progress towards the achievement of the SDGs. I am confident that this project will positively impact people in the region.

commented Cosmas Zavazava, Director of the Telecommunication Development Bureau at ITU, during the forum.

National Information Technologies: The company is the operator of the e-Gov system in Kazakhstan, supporting its core infrastructure. Additionally, it manages the transportation and logistics system, as well as data from the control devices of oil products, ethyl alcohol, and alcoholic beverages.

Eurasian Development Bank: Headquartered in Almaty, the EDB is an international development finance institution investing in the expansion of sustainable trade and economic ties in Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, the Kyrgyz Republic, Russia, and Tajikistan. The EDB’s charter capital is $7 billion.

International Telecommunication Union: A specialized UN agency, the ITU works on the facilitation of international connectivity in communication networks. The agency allocates global radio spectrum and satellite orbits and develops the standards that ensure networks and technologies connect seamlessly.
