Kazakhstan, Astana, Jan. 3 / Trend L. Podolyak /
Kazakhstan has launched a long term programme designed to create an optimal housing model, set to improve the quality of housing and communal services and ensure a comfortable lifestyle for the population, the Prime Minister's official website said.
The modernisation of the housing and communal services programme launched as a pilot system last year, will enable repairs on general condominium type properties, including thermo-modernisation by creating special types of financing.
"The unprecedented work was conducted in all regions to modernise homes and communal complexes and to repair and construct roads, towns and settlements," President Nazarbayev said earlier.
The Kazakh Centre for Modernisation and Development of the Communal and Housing Sector together with the Centre for Public-Private Partnership are developing measures to set up the elements of the Public-Private Partnership in the municipal sector, including water supply and the sewerage system, natural gas industry, power supply, heat supply, garbage removal and lift maintenance.
"More than 81,000 kilometres of a network of natural gas, power and heat supplies all within the modernisation programme of housing and communal services is taking place in the Kazakh Republic from 2011 - 2020," Prime Minister Karim Massimov said earlier at a meeting of the parliamentary faction of the Nur Otan party.
