The minister of Information and Communication of the Republic of Kazakhstan, Dauren Abayev spoke about the changes in work schedule of Astana residents in connection with the holding of the world specialized exhibition EXPO 2017. The representative of the Kazakh government commented on the innovations on air on “Khabar” TV channel during the “Open Dialogue” program.
"The sliding schedule of working hours is one of the ways to relieve traffic jams. If the Akimat of Astana city changes working hours not for all institutions, but for some, with an interval of 10-15 minutes, this will allow us to stand in traffic jams much less and the efficiency from this will grow. In the end, the residents of our capital will benefit,"Abayev said.
The minister positively responded to the initiative of the Akimat of Astana, urging residents of the capital of Kazakhstan to support the idea.
"When I was the President's press secretary, we visited a lot of countries around the world. This practice exists eveywhere: in Tokyo, in Berlin. I know for sure that workers in the Netherlands work from 6 am to 3 pm. At three o'clock they finish work and have the whole day free,” the Minister of Information and Communication noted.
Let us remind that about the fact that during the world specialized exhibition EXPO 2017 Astana residents will work on the changed schedule became known at the press conference on the issues of transport support and traffic management in Astana during the exhibition. The innovation comes into force on June 1.
