 - On 2nd February 2018, Kazakhstan as part of the Eurasian Economic Union, hosted a forum in Almaty titled ‘Digital agenda in the era of globalization.’

Topics on digital economy were discussed at this forum. In May, the topics of digital transformation will be discussed at a panel discussion titled ‘Practice and Challenges of Public Administration in the Digital Era’ at the Global Challenges Summit 2018.

The main goal of the Digital Kazakhstan program is to accelerate the development of Kazakhstan’s economy and improve the quality of life of the population through the use of digital technologies. According to the program, the share of the IT sector in Kazakhstan’s gross domestic product (GDP) will be increased to five per cent in the next two years. 150, 000 new jobs will be created and the growth of labor productivity is estimated at 37 per cent.

 - Kazpost will train the public on the modern digital trends such as e-commerce and the ‘Government for Citizens’ service. The public will be taught on using the Government services electronically. The corporation will also train the public on how to receive electronic digital signature and the correct way of using the service. This is all about protecting the public’s data.

The e-Government (e-Gov) is a successful example of the introduction of information technology in the public sector. Kazakhs can perform hundreds of operations remotely using the e-Gov service. Over the next five years, 80 per cent of Government services can be accessed electronically. According to experts, digital transformation is a worldwide trend today. The introduction of digital innovations into everyday life fundamentally changes the economies of countries.
