Astana. January 9. KazTAG - Passenger and cargo flow at the border of Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan has increased by eight times over the past 20 years, the authorities are taking measures to improve the infrastructure at the checkpoints, said the officials in Majilis.
"Since the moment of independence of sovereign Kazakhstan the flow has increased by 8 times, accordingly, the infrastructure which was created 20 years ago is not compliant with the passenger and cargo flow today.
