Resulting from the two-days event, results will be summed up and priority areas of bilateral relations development will be determined with participation of K. Boronov, First Deputy Prime Minister of the RoK and A. Zhumagaliyev, Deputy Prime Minister of the RoK.
Furthermore, it is planned to arrange communications and improve relationships among the two countries’ members of government agencies, organizations and IT for further implementing and developing the projects, both in terms of national digitalization programs and as part of separate bilateral relationships between agencies and organizations.
