The head of state noted that judicial proceedings were carried out on paper. He cited the example of Kazakhstan, where 91 percent of lawsuits were filed in electronic format.

We spend tons of paper. I looked at the cost of paper. At least 25 million soms were spend on it in 2017 and 33 million soms are budgeted for 2019.
