The report of the Minister of Labor and Social Protection of Population M.Abylkasymova was heard. on the results of the Ministry activities and on the tasks for the forthcoming period. In his speech, the Minister noted that the work of the Ministry of Labor and Social Protection of Population is based on three main directions. This is the modernization of the system of social security and protection of the population, the promotion of productive employment, the increase of incomes of the population and the mobility of labor resources, as well as the protection of the labor rights of citizens and the regulation of labor relations.

In 2017, comprehensive support was provided to all socially unprotected strata of the population. Thus, the pensions of Kazakhstanis have been increased twice, measures to support maternity and childhood have been expanded, new standards for the provision of special social services for victims of domestic violence have been introduced, changes have been introduced in the system of ensuring rights and improving the quality of life of persons with disabilities.

Much work has been done to ensure a barrier-free environment. The share of socially significant facilities accessible to persons with disabilities reached 91% (of the number of certified ones), including more than 5 thousand objects.

The Minister noted the Program of Productive Employment and Mass Entrepreneurship as an important tool to promote productive employment and increase incomes of the population.

Speaking about the development of mass entrepreneurship, the Minister noted the new format of microcrediting and the possibility of training the basics of entrepreneurship under the Bastau - Business project, implemented jointly with the Atameken NPP. In total, last year 15 thousand people were trained in entrepreneurship. In addition, 7.2 thousand of people received microcredits, of which more than 4 thousand are directed to start-up projects.

A popular measure of the Program was the youth practice, which allows them to gain initial experience and find a job. So, in 2017, 26,000 young people passed youth practice, after completion of which 12,000 people were employed for permanent work.

To promote labor mobility, the population was relocated from the labor surplus to the work-poor northern regions, their number was 1,565 families, which is 8 times more than in 2016. The settlers received material assistance to move in the amount of 84 thousand tenge for each member of the family, monthly subsidies from 35 thousand tenge to 72 thousand tenge were provided for reimbursement of expenses for hiring of housing and payment of utilities.

As a whole, by the results of the year, 576 thousand citizens were covered by employment measures and 450 thousand people were employed. The unemployment rate was 4.9%, which is the lowest value for years of independence. Measures of social support for the population covered more than 3.5 million people.

Positive results achieved in 2017, create the basis for further growth of social protection of the population and the quality of life of citizens in 2018.

So, from January 1, 2018, the level of the poverty line was increased from 40% to 50% of the subsistence level, which allowed to increase the average size of payments by almost 2 times.

In addition, in 2018, a new format for targeting social assistance was introduced, which makes it possible to involve able-bodied members of low-income families in measures to promote employment.

It is also noted that as early as July 1, pensioners will receive a basic pension in a new amount. The increase will affect more than 2 million pensioners, of which about 1 million people will receive a basic pension at the maximum amount, and for 930,000 people, the increase will be from 37% to 81%.

Expenses for the support of motherhood and childhood this year will be about 275 billion tenge and will increase by 12% as compared to 2017.

In implementation of the instruction of the Head of State, announced in the Address to the people of Kazakhstan in 2018, measures of social support for persons with special needs will be expanded: from July 1 this year. will be introduced a new manual for people caring for adults of I group disability from childhood. This will allow 14 thousand families to receive cash assistance of about 30 thousand tenge a month.

In order to involve citizens in productive employment and provide stable incomes of the population, a single online platform has been created to search for work and recruitment - the Electronic Labor Exchange, functioning on the basis of the enbek.kz Internet portal, where today more than 42,000 vacancies are located, more than 85,000 resume and registered more than 48 thousand employers.

Speaking about the formalization of the employment of the population, the Minister noted that the status of 800,000 people has been updated today, and a new legal regime has been developed - a single aggregate payment (ESP), for payers of which lower rates for tax and social payments are determined, and its payment will allow registration in the system of compulsory medical and social insurance, as well as pensions.

The current direction of the department is the digitalization of the social and labor sphere. So, the Ministry implements proactive services, which will be provided without citizens applying to state bodies. In particular, for persons with disabilities, until the end of 2018, 8 services related to disability will be transferred to a proactive regime. The process of employment is also transferred to the electronic format: from job search to the introduction of electronic labor books.
