Governor of the region Erik Sultanov instructed to take special control over the performance of planned tax revenues to the local budget of districts and Petropavlovsk city.
"As you know, this year is difficult for us. We need to exceed the planks of last year on receipt of taxes in the budget. It is necessary to strengthen the tax administration. It is also necessary to work on wage increases, especially in rural areas. It will entail the increase in the individual income tax. Do not put off these issues, start working since January", Erik Sultanov said referring to the mayors of the districts and Petropavlovsk city.
According to the Governor’s office, the results of social and economic development of the region were voiced by Aigul Khassenova, the Acting Head of Department of Economy and Budget Planning of NKR.

However, last year the volume of investments in fixed assets amounted to 115.073 billion tenge, which is 8.7% more than in 2013.

The Governor of the region noted that this year it’s necessary to intensify the efforts on attracting the investment.

The leasing mechanism through "KazAgroFinance" gives the opportunity to buy equipment without surcharges and preliminary assessments. I want to remind you that this year in Petropavlovsk we launch the production of combine harvesters together with the Finnish company “Sampo Rozenlew Ltd”. And we have already had the order for 50 harvester-sets", E. Sultanov said.
