The third initiative is aimed at increasing the accessibility and quality of higher education and improving the living conditions of student youth. In the 2018-19 academic year, 20 thousand new grants will be allocated to the existing 54 thousand allocated annually, including. 11 thousand - for training bachelors in technical specialties. Until the end of 2022, the construction of new student hostels will begin at no less than 75,000 places. The implementation of this initiative will lead to an expansion of accessibility of higher education for the population.
The fourth initiative is aimed at the expansion of microcredits. In 2018, the allocated funds for these purposes will increase from 42 billion to 64 billion tenge. As a result, the total coverage by microcrediting will increase from 7 to 14 thousand people. This will enable the development of entrepreneurship in the countryside.
The fifth initiative initiates the further gasification of the country. To date, the level of gasification of the population in the country is almost 50%. The implementation of the project of the construction of a gas main along the route Karaozek (Kyzyl-Orda region) - Zhezkazgan - Karaganda - Temirtau - Astana, will allow gasification of the central and northern regions of the country and provide gas to 2.7 million people.
