The annual increase in the number of vehicles in the country is a matter of concern. In order to reduce traffic, Almaty mayors also tried various measures (prioritization of bus routes, extension of bicycle lanes, etc.).

In 2016, a recycling fee was introduced to prevent further deterioration of the environment and increase sales of domestic transport.

* Disposal fee is a fee charged by the government to car manufacturers to protect the environment and imported cars.

1 liter car - 437 550 tenge

The range from 1.1 to 2 liters is 1,020,950 tenge

The range from 2.1 to 3 liters is 1,458,500 tenge

More than 3 liters - 3 354 550 tenge

Nuriddin Sadykov (Entrepreneur):

In 2013, the number of cars under three years was 110 thousand, in 2014 - 326 thousand, in 2016 - 624 thousand. That is, we see an increase in the number of new cars.

However, in 2016, a recycling fee was introduced, the number of new cars decreased and the number of old cars increased. From 2016 to 2018, the number of new cars decreased by 416 thousands. The share of old cars

In 2013 - 80%

In 2014 - 72%

In 2015 - 59%

In 2017 - 61%

In 2018 - 65%

In 2020 - 70%.

Now it is almost 72%. Not only did it not improve the domestic car fleet, but it ruined it. The environment has not improved, it has been damaged. Instead of being affordable, prices have skyrocketed. People are not able to get a safe and suitable car. He was hit by a lot of money.

Sanzhar Bokaev (political scientist):

"According to official data, Kazakhstan produces 80,000 cars a year (250 units per day).

The Ministry of Industry is stuck trying to prove that we will produce 167 car models.

The state supports the automotive industry and sets only one basic condition: the cars must be produced in Kazakhstan. Therefore, if the car is not produced in Kazakhstan, the state should not give it benefits and subsidies.

Therefore, we need to prove that the cars are made in another country. This is the reason for stopping the unjustified payments of billions of tenge. It's so easy to do! Each car has a VIN code, which belongs to the international accounting system and includes World Manufacturers Identification - in the world index of the manufacturer.

We went to car showrooms in Almaty and took pictures of VIN codes. Thus, according to the international accounting system, VIN codes of cars produced in Kazakhstan are produced in Russia or South Korea. None of the cars are made in Kazakhstan. This means that the state must stop paying hundreds of billions of tenge to fake producers who have become oligarchs.

Another important condition set by the state is the development of local industry. In other words, car manufacturers have committed to produce as many spare parts in Kazakhstan as possible. No car manufacturer has fulfilled this condition, and the state is silent. Everyone knows that half of the spare parts do not have any models made in Kazakhstan. We don't even remove bolts and nuts. Why do we deceive ourselves? The Ministry of Industry has never conducted research on the localization of the car industry, and the government is pouring hundreds of billions into the mythical car industry. Do we really think we produce good products from the Japanese, Germans or Koreans? Why don't we invite Toyota or another well-known manufacturer, we will create conditions for it, because BMW has built a plant in South Africa. "

According to the government, the decisions on car production are yielding positive results. And the society has a negative opinion. Who is right? The decision is yours!
