Kazakh government allocates about 200 billion tenge for Auyl - Yel Besigi program in 2023

This year, nearly 200 billion tenge from Kazakhstan’s state budget is allocated for the implementation of almost 2,000 projects in 800 villages as part of the Auyl - Yel Besigi program, Kazakh Prime Minister Alikhan Smailov said at a government meeting. He instructed to attract investments for more active development of the villages in the regions. At the same time, the Prime Minister emphasized that the project funding increases annually. Over the three years, 326 billion tenge has been allocated from the country’s budget for these purposes.

“More than 3,700 social and engineering infrastructure development projects have been put in place in more than a thousand villages. About 33,000 jobs have been created so far. Good dynamics in the utilization of allocated funds can be observed in the Pavlodar, Aktobe and Kyzylorda regions, whereas a lower level was recorded in the Almaty and Ulytau regions,” Smailov informed.

The Prime Minister noted that this year, the Concept of Rural Development, with the planned implementation until 2027, was also adopted on the instructions of the Head of State.

“As part of the concept, the Auyl - Yel Besigi project is defined as one of the main tools for the modernization of rural infrastructure. By 2027, all 3,500 villages with high development potential are expected to be brought up to the parameters of the System of Regional Standards. The Kazakh Ministry of National Economy together with the relevant state bodies and local administrations should take all necessary measures to achieve the targets set within the Concept of Rural Development,” he pointed out.
