Kazakhstan's e-government is all set to introduce new services in 2011. About 15 new offers are planned to be launched on the official portal this year. One of them is related to birth registration.
Necessary documents will be processed automatically without parents' participations and through special data bases of state bodies. The “National Information Technologies” Company is the one in charge of developing and expanding the web-portal. The portal issued 19 thousand electronic certificates in early 2009 while in 2010 their number totaled two million.
Since the beginning of 2011 people obtained over one million different documents from the website. Advanced telecommunications infrastructure should become a competitive advantage in hopes of attracting investors, said Nursultan Nazarbayev at a session on April 17 involving the cabinet members.
In particular, this applies to the development of electronic government. According to the rating, the UN department has a leading position in the CIS in terms of readiness to use electronic government technologies. As of today, the portal provides over two thousand information-related and over 70 interactive types of services.
