In the September Message, the Head of State set specific tasks for the Government to support IT and digitalization. Increased attention to the issues of digitalization and innovation is always relevant. We are facing a strategically important task – to turn Kazakhstan into an IT country. The new task of the Government is to bring the export of IT services to $1 billion by 2026 and prepare an additional 20000 IT-specialists by 2025.

It is safe to say that students of the Peoples’ Friendship University named after academician A.Kuatbekov are ready for new challenges in the IT field and become highly qualified IT-specialists.
