Almaty is just a wonderful city. However, it suffers the same problems as other cities throughout the globe. For example, traffic congestion, issues with communications, pollution, the environment. They must be addressed, not in favor of drivers only but also of all citizens. So that everyone could enjoy staying in the city – mountains and nature, as well as Almaty’s famous apples.

 

 

According to the Mayor Bauyrzhan Baibek, Almaty should become a model of a modern smart city. As an example, the head of the metropolitan Mayor’s office referred to the experience of contacting with the population through social networks. Contacting directly through the Mayor’s office account on social networks allowed to solve any raised issue in two days. Start-ups Introduced before the end of this year will allow improving the performance of the healthcare system and housing and communal services.

The system of electronic Communal service is a great project. That is, we want to organize the interconnection between home residents and the Communal Service in electronic format. There are also such projects as an electronic appointment in hospitals, electronic diary for school students, and electronic registration of meter readings.

 

Charger boxes for tablets will appear in bus stations throughout Almaty until the end of the year. And a special mobile application will show the approaching bus on the map. In addition, 250 playgrounds will be constructed and free wifi will be provided in 20 parks.
