RESULTS OF THE BIFSD2023 INTERNATIONAL FORUM “BISHKEK INTERNATIONAL FORUM. SPATIAL DEVELOPMENT. THE NEW DIGITAL REALITY”

The International Forum "Spatial Development: A New Digital Reality"  successfully concluded in the city of Bishkek, the capital of the Kyrgyz Republic. The event was organized by the Government of the Kyrgyz Republic in collaboration with the Association "ABUKO" and took place from November 30 to December 1, 2023, bringing together over 200 participants from 11 countries.

A special focus of the forum was given to issues related to state cadastral valuation. During the opening speech, Deputy Chairman of the Cabinet of Ministers of the Kyrgyz Republic, Edil Baisalov, announced that the Republic is in the process of reforming its tax system. A key element of this reform will be a review of property tax, gradually transitioning to a cadastral valuation system as the basis for land and real estate taxation.

This topic was further elaborated by Deputy Director of the Land Resources Service of the Kyrgyz Republic, Kubanychbekov Tursunbek, who announced a pilot project this year to determine the cadastral value of apartments in the city of Bishkek.

Ulan Musaev, Head of the State Tax Service at the Ministry of Finance of the Kyrgyz Republic, stated that his department, thanks to an improved administration system, managed to increase revenues by 2.5 times. He expressed confidence that the shift to taxation based on cadastral value would not only increase budget revenues but also make the property taxation system more equitable.

The issue of fairness in taxing based on cadastral value was further discussed by Oleg Mokrushin, Head of the Scientific and Technical Expert Council of the Association "ABUKO," who talked about taxation systems in different countries and concluded that a taxation system based on the market value of taxable objects is an indicator of a country's economic development.

In his keynote speech, Dr. Orhan Ercan, a faculty member at Ankara University and the former vice president of the International Federation of Surveyors, emphasized the importance of incorporating new and innovative approaches into national spatial information management. He advocated for the implementation of integrated, evidence-based decision-making solutions and the maximization and utilization of national information systems tailored to the specific situations and conditions of each country.

Dr. Ercan highlighted the significance of capacity building to leverage spatial technology, improve informed government decision-making processes, facilitate private sector development, and take practical measures to advance countries towards e-economies, e-services, and e-commerce, underscoring the importance of Geospatial data in these progressions.

Mustafa Akkul, Head of the Real Estate Appraisal Department of the Registry and Cadastre Service of the Republic of Turkey, presented a pilot project on mass appraisal conducted in the province of Amasya in the Republic of Türkiye. The approaches and methods used in this project were found to be similar to those applied in the pilot project in the city of Bishkek.

Since 2003, the Republic of Belarus has determined the cadastral value of land and land plots using mass appraisal methods based on the market value of typical real estate objects. Veronica Solovyova, Head of the Valuation Department of the State Unitary Enterprise "National Cadastre Agency" of the Republic of Belarus, discussed this approach in her presentation.

She emphasized the importance of improving the methodology of cadastral valuation of land and scaling cadastral valuation to real estate objects, along with the automation of work through the development of cadastral valuation software.

Ildar Mukhamedshin, Director of Development at LLC "Softplaza," shared the experience of creating and developing the regional automated cadastral valuation system "RASKO." He highlighted that the software was created five years ago and has been continuously improved since, allowing for the qualitative and timely determination of the cadastral value of tens of millions of real estate objects across the entire territory of the Russian Federation.

The company plans to scale the Russian experience beyond the country, and the participation of the RASKO system in the pilot project for cadastral valuation in the territory of Bishkek proved to be quite successful.

In the section "Integrated Geospatial Data Systems," Deputy Director of the State Enterprise "Kyrgyzgiprozem," Azamat Karipov, presented on the topic of state geospatial data in Kyrgyzstan, highlighting the significant progress made in the use of unmanned aerial vehicles for filling registries with reliable data in recent years.

The presentation by the Head of the Department of Cartography of the Registry and Cadastre Service of the Republic of Turkey on the implementation of a 3D cadastral system in the country drew particular interest from the audience.

The next stage of a series of educational initiatives of the ABICV Association has passed

In the city of Kazan, on the territory of the Technopark in the field of high technologies "IT Park", an educational intensive course was held aimed at increasing the level of knowledge and developing skills in using automation tools for the process of determining the cadastral value of land plots. The event was attended by 36 cadastral appraisers from 13 constituent entities of the Russian Federation.


For 5 days, in the format of a round table, the participants actively shared their successes in solving complex problems that arise in everyday work.

Each of those present had something to tell their colleagues. For example, representatives of the State Budgetary Institution "GKO Center" of the Ryazan Region shared their experience in grouping objects of assessment and the practice of applying the provisions of Article 22.1 of the Federal Law-237. And employees of the State Budgetary Institution of the Republic of Mordovia "Property Fund" demonstrated the ability to process and record information about the boundaries of the ZOUIT. In turn, the specialists of the State Budgetary Institution "GKO and OTN" of the Chechen Republic showed how, using MSExcel functions, it is possible to automate the process of determining codes for types of land use. Representatives of the OGBU "TsGKO" of the Ulyanovsk region demonstrated how within the framework of the institution the selection of reference land plots and analogous objects for individual assessment was automated using the reference book of calculation coefficients.

As a result of discussions on the topic of practical application of guidelines for state cadastral valuation, a number of unresolved issues arose. As a result, it was decided to send a request to Rosreestr for clarification of certain provisions of Order No. P/0336 dated August 4, 2021.

The event was attended by 27 employees of budgetary institutions for GKO from 12 constituent entities of the Russian Federation.

It is no coincidence that Innopolis was chosen as a platform for training state cadastral appraisers. This year, the city was visited by the Chairman of the Government of the Russian Federation Mikhail Mishustin, where he recommended thinking about automating mass assessment for tax purposes.

implements the message of the Chairman of the Government in full swing, and puts the regions on a digital footing.

The classes were primarily practical in nature with laptops, so that each student was immersed in determining the cadastral value of land plots in their region.

Within 5 days, the appraisers got acquainted with the latest developments in the field of cadastral valuation and the prospects for their development. The main topic of discussion was the organization of the process of determining the cadastral value of land plots in 2022. The participants came to the unanimous opinion that the state of the local budgets of the subjects in the next 4 years will largely depend on the quality of this work.

The specifics of the format of the event, due to its location - within the university campus, contributed to the rallying of the team of state cadastral appraisers from different parts of the country - from Buryatia to the Leningrad region.

The ABICV Association plans to continue holding professional meetings aimed at increasing the level of competence of specialists in the field of state cadastral valuation.
