PIT Expansion Underway

ALMATY – More than 150 companies implementing high-tech projects will be opening in the Park of Innovative Technologies (PIT), a special economic zone near the city.

The PIT expansion is planned in the next five years, as the need for additional space has increased. Quality growth areas for projects will be provided, due to the formation and development of the innovation cluster and active implementation of the second stage of the State Programme of Industrial and Innovative Development (SPAIID).

Visiting journalists recently saw the implementation of the plans during a presentation of the new Centre of Innovations Support, opened by Alatau technopark and PIT.

The centre covers several blocks, according to Nurlan Kopbossynov, chairman of the board of the special economic zone. One of the blocks is the consultation office, which will be receiving requests from new and acting enterprises. The second block is contract and the third, a service block. There is also a multifunctional co-working office, which will work to arrange the participating companies on the park tract. This will allow for organising the activity on the one-stop-shop principle and giving faster consideration to inventors’ applications.

The opening included demonstrations of interesting developments, which will likely be implemented, for example, the project Personal Box Office of the certified system of momentary payments, Box Office24.
