Among them was young entrepreneur Rassul Abdullayev, who spoke about his projects to promote the image of Kazakhstan abroad.

“Within the Year of Youth, I would like to propose a project under the code name “Ministry of Marketing of the Republic of Kazakhstan”. Its mission will be to rebrand Kazakhstan on the world stage. This association can become a platform for the development, support and improvement of PR services of all departments, popularization of our ideology “Rukhani Zhangyru” not only in the country, but also abroad”, Rassul Abdullayev said.

He assured the Kazakh President that he had already formed the team of professionals, consisting of strategists, analytical experts, directors, screenwriters and content makers.

“All we need is a chance and we will demonstrate a result as soon as possible", Abdullayev said, noting that it will be the first ministry of marketing in the world.

Another initiative Rassul Abdullayev came up with is a “Find yourself” project. As part of this initiative, young Kazakhstanis will search for their true self by attending special trainings to get hands-on skills in various spheres. That, in his words, will help Kazakhstani youth find their way in life, become professionals and find their lifework.

The youth movement of the Assembly of People of Kazakhstan came forward with an initiative to plant an apple orchard in Astana.

“I learned about the fact that Kazakhstan is a historical birthplace of apples from your article “Seven Margins of the Great Steppe”. Today we continue this living margin of the Great Steppe in Atyrau, we revive the glory of “makhanbet” apples. Therefore, within the Year of Youth, the youth movement at the Assembly of People of Kazakhstan "Zhangyru Zholy" would like to propose a special project. We would like to plant the apple orchard in Astana this spring. We have already selected 4 varieties of special apples that are not afraid of frost or wind. We ask you to allocate a place in the capital, at least 1 hectare”, young farmer from Atyrau Tamila Rozmetova suggested.

Head of State Nursultan Nazarbayev supported the initiative and instructed Astana’s Mayor Bakhyt Sultanov to determine the place for the future apple orchard.

Young scientist from Nazarbayev University, Damira Pernebayeva, offered to organize grants for the most advanced researches.

“I conducted research on electricity production. I use rural refuse at farms in Kazakhstan. Thanks to the state support simple farmers can generate electricity and sell it to the network. The results of our work were presented at an international conference in Malaysia in 2017. At the moment I am a doctoral student at Nazarbayev University’s School of Engineering. Let me ask you to announce special grants for the top 100 most important advanced researches of young scientists. I am sure that all investments and researches will pay off in the coming decades and will be a powerful innovative impetus in the development of the state”, the scientist addressed Nursultan Nazarbayev.

Ethnic Kazakh from Mongolia, famous throughout the world as the youngest eagle huntress, Aisholpan Nurgaiypkyzy, appealed to the President of Kazakhstan to open eagle hunters schools in all cities of the country.

We remind that the Year of Youth is the unique and large-scale event, initiated in Kazakhstan for the first time by the presidential decree. During this year it is planned to take measures that will fully support and implement the state youth policy.
