Theme of the meeting was ongoing work on construction of roads in NKR and Kazakhstan in general. Sayranbek Barmakov also noted that in the current message a great attention is given to the development of road sector, and a great responsibility rests on professionals of this sector, since the reconstruction will cover about 4,400 km, and in 2020 already 7000 km. of roads will be toll roads.
