Experts Opinion on State-of-the-Nation Address

The state-of-the-nation address of the President of Kazakhstan will contribute to the competitiveness of business in the country, said assistant to the President, Maulen Ashimbayev.

He said that measures such as the three-year tax exemption for small and medium-sized businesses and the moratorium on checking the SMEs will definitely play a role in development of entrepreneurship.

“Kassym-Jomart Kemelevich raised one of the up-to-date topics which are discussed by entrepreneurs. Over the past years, the number of lending entities has decreased. The economy can’t develop without lending. Thus, corresponding tasks were assigned to the National Bank and the government. From the point of view of business support, I think there are a lot of innovations in the state-of-the-nation address,” Ashimbayev said.

The state-of-the-nation address is essentially a guideline that defines the development goals and objectives for the coming period for the whole society, noted Advisor to President of Kazakhstan, Yerlan Karin.

“The state-of-the-nation address is a call to action for executive authorities. We need financial and legal support to achieve the goal. The government is given the opportunity to plan the programs. It will also allow deputies to take into account all that was said when drawing up and discussing bills,” Karin said.
