Belts of small and medium-sized businesses will be created around 50 large enterprises, this will increase the income of business entities, get guaranteed sales of goods, and increase productivity,” Yeraly Tugzhanov said.
The Deputy Prime Minister stressed that the program pays special attention to the development of competencies among young people, increasing their employment, developing the skills of working citizens, including socially vulnerable segments of the population.
“In the new academic year, all schools in the region are introducing a full-time position of a career guidance teacher, and the work of colleges and Centers for relevant professions, including representatives of the younger generation, is being strengthened. Training in 15 new and 25 updated professions is being introduced in 15 colleges of the region,” said Aitkazina, head of the regional education department.
