Kazakhstan Ministry of Communications and Information is creating websites for regional print media, reports.

“KazContent has developed 10 websites for media free of charge and 16 more are under development. The plan is to create over 100 websites by the end of the year,” Kazakhstan Minister of Communications and Information Askar Zhumagaliyev wrote in his Twitter. According to manager of KazContent Dinara Zhakudina, the project is currently at the stage of negotiations with representatives of regional print media.

Zhakudina emphasized that online-resources are made for regional media free of charge based on CMS Joomla, a free system of online-services content management. “Print media will have to pay for domains only, which is a minimum of 4,300 tenge ($29),” she said and noted that KazContent is also training journalists on specifics of work in the Internet free of charge.

“An ambitious goal of KazContent is to launch 150 or at least 100 websites by the end of this year,” Zhakudina said. She also said that KazContent frequently notes that not all print media realize the significance of the project. “The main objective of the project is to increase the level of Kazkahstan citizens' information awareness.”
