Nur-Sultan Akim (Mayor) Bakhyt Sultanov instructed akims of districts and the city akimat’s department heads to more closely engage with people on social media.

“Akims of districts and the city akimat’s department heads should be in constant communication with citizens. Pay special attention to the quality of your content. In addition, do not dwell on any one particular social media account, much less launch a social media page for the sake of having it. You should know and understand your audience. For example, as far as I know, school children and students prefer VKontakte. It means that staff of the Education Department should not only be on Facebook, but also on VKontakte. Twitter may be used to attract investment and for brand promotion. Therefore, there should be a systematic approach to the execution of this task,” he told the city leaders, as reported the Nur-Sultan Akimat press service.

Kazakh President Kassym-Jomart Tokayev tasked akims of cities and regions March 27 with promptly responding to the demands of the population.

“Akims of cities and regions should respond quickly to public inquiries and carry out explanatory work. It is important to engage with people on social media – create groups in messenger services, explain current policies and moderate a given situation,” he said at a recent meeting with the akims of regions, as well as the akims of three cities of national significance, Nur-Sultan, Almaty and Shymkent.
