In Kazakhstan, it is planned to launch a number of new digital services for citizens and businesses and modernize the architecture of “electronic government”. These and other topics were discussed at a meeting of the Commission on Digitalization Issues chaired by the Prime Minister of the Republic of Kazakhstan Alikhan Smailov.
