ASTANA. March 12. KAZINFORM "Ministry of Economic Development and Trade of Kazakhstan jointly with JSC Economic Research Institute develop a program on the development of single-industry towns," head of the department for regional policy and inter-budget relations of the Ministry of Economic Development and Trade of Kazakhstan Dauren Zhambaibek said in an interview for Pm.kz site.

According to the information, this program will have three directions.

Besides, the single-industry towns with high, medium and low economic potential will be determined.

"The second one aims at supporting and developing social and utilities infrastructure of single-industry towns. The third direction will be oriented at distribution of the labor potential of single-industry towns through increasing labor mobility in the growth places," D. Zhambaibek emphasized.

Besides, he noted that it was planned to make amendments to the current Regional Development Program.
