ADDRESS BY THE PRESIDENT
OF THE REPUBLIC OF KAZAKHSTAN,
LEADER OF THE NATION,
STRATEGY KAZAKHSTAN 2050
NEW POLITICAL COURSE
OF THE ESTABLISHED STATE
We have built a new capital – Astana. It is a modern city that has turned into a symbol of our country that we take pride in. We have unleashed the potential of the capital to showcase our country’s capabilities to the entire world. This is exactly why the international community elected Kazakhstan to host the EXPO 2017 international exhibition. This would have been impossible without Astana. Very few cities have received such an honour. In fact, Kazakhstan is the first post-Soviet country to chair the Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe and to host the OSCE Summit, and will now be the first to host EXPO 2017 – a world-class event.
To date we have attracted over $160 billion of foreign investment.
Our initiative to convene a Conference on Interaction and Confidence Building Measures in Asia (CICA) has seen CICA grow into an organisation with 24 member countries with a combined population of more than 3 billion people. CICA is a critical element of Kazakhstan’s security.
Since 1997 we’ve built 942 schools and 758 hospitals across the country.
We are developing a network of academic intellectual schools and world-class vocational colleges. Over the past 12 years the number of college scholarshi ps has increased by 182%. In 1993 we adopted a unique “Bolashak” programme, which has enabled 8,000 gifted young people to study in the world’s top universities.
The era of the hydrocarbon economy is coming to an end. We face the beginning of a new era where human activities will be based not so much on oil and gas, but on renewable energy sources.
• By 2050, Kazakhstan must apply the latest standards of technology to all of its production assets.
The upbringing of children is task for both parents, not only the mother.
New approaches in healthcare for children
The basis of patriotism in Kazakhstan is equal rights for all citizens based on their share of responsibility for the honour of our homeland.
We are a multiethnic society and there should be no double standards when it comes to interethnic relations.
Don’t follow their ideas!
We are facing the same problems faced by all nations in various periods of history. Those countries that overcame these problems have become strong nations and States.
Today indeed all the doors, all the opportunities and roads, are open to our citizens. We are together and we are one – one country and one nation.
It was almost 300 years ago, by Anyrakay, where the Kazakh people united together. At that moment, devotion to our land and common sense won. This act was made by an ancestor of every one of us.
