In his speech, Tokayev noted the need to discuss the current situation in the country and to outline methods of cooperation between the government and businesses in an effort aimed at a “profound transformation of the entire social structure.”
“The dissonance between the declared social and economic agenda and the actual state of affairs has acquired a critical mass. This is why we urgently need to start working together to reset economic policy. We need to define new rules of the game. More honest, transparent, and fair,” said Tokayev.
Speaking about the meeting, Yerkin Tatishev, chair of the country’s large multisector Kusto Group, said the issues raised during the meeting were acute.
