ASTANA ­– First Deputy Prime Minister Bakhytzhan Sagintayev summed up the results of the Land Reform Commission’s first session, during a recent briefing at the Central Communications Service.

“We created the headquarters of the commission under the Ministry of Agriculture. The secretariat of the commission started its work, which is to accumulate all the proposals from both the commission members and those received from the regions. Many proposals have been received. In addition to the land issues, there were many other proposals that will be considered. Proposals that do not relate to the activities of the commission will be redirected to the relevant state bodies,” he said.

Sagintayev informed that there is call-centre number 1434 that people can use to address questions about the land reform, as well as the website

“We are interested in the involvement of a maximum number of our citizens in the discussion, therefore, we involved all the social councils under the akimats of Astana and Almaty, as well as regional centres,” Sagintayev said.

Sagintayev urged all citizens to take part discussions on the issue.

He recalled that on May 14 members of the land commission agreed to split into four task groups: economic, legal, on the legality and transparency of procedures in the provision of land and a group on information and outreach.
