Tamara Duissenova has been appointed Kazakhstan Minister of Labor and Social Protection, Tengrinews.kz reports citing the President’s press-service.
“Tamara Duissenova is herewith appointed Kazakhstan Minister of Labor and Social Protection,” the presidential decree said.
Prior to the appointment, Duissenova served as the acting Labor Minister. Serik Abdenov was her predecessor.
Serik Abdenov was dismissed on June 10, 2013, several days after the President returned the pension reform draft law to the Parliament. According to the President, the government and the Labor Ministry failed to successfully represent the draft law in public discussions and assert its importance in the people’s minds.
The President suggested to start the gradual raise of the retirement age for women from 58 to 63 not from January 1, 2014 but from January 1, 2018. Besides, he instructed the government to work out measures for further modernization of the pension system until 2030 and develop mechanisms of efficient investment of the pension money into projects in the most promising sectors of the economy.
