The Address of First President of Kazakhstan - Elbasy Nursultan Nazarbayev to the people of Kazakhstan

Dear compatriots!

We have witnessed how the local coronavirus outbreak escalated into the global pandemic.

Currently, the virus has already crossed the borders of more than 155 states, including Kazakhstan.

Its geography is steadily expanding, accompanied by an increase in the number of victims.

This situation is worsened by the global financial crisis, the collapse in commodity and foreign exchange markets.

All this has an impact on our country.

We are faced with extremely difficult threats, which together can be called an “ideal storm”.

In terms of the complexity of the tasks that we need to find a solution to, the current time is to some extent comparable with the period of the early 90s, when it was really very difficult for us.

In these conditions, I urge all Kazakhstanis to support the actions of President of the country Kassym-Jomart Tokayev and the Government, which are being implemented these days.

To protect against coronavirus, the country's authorities have developed a set of preventive measures.

In this context, the introduction of a state of emergency is an important and necessary step.

The purpose of this action is to protect the interests of citizens and the state.

There is a special headquarters to minimize damage from coronavirus infection and stabilize the domestic economy.

Every effort is being made to prevent interruptions in the supply of food, essentials and medical supplies.

All social obligations of the state continue to be fully implemented.

Law enforcement agencies provide order.

Full support is provided to domestic enterprises, small and medium-sized businesses.

Every effort is made to save jobs.

The measures taken at the state level are timely and meet the crisis situation.

I support them!

At the same time, the Government needs to develop a scenario of countermeasures in case the current crisis takes on a long-term nature.

In this situation, it will be important to prepare the country and citizens for austerity and integrated access to the path of sustainable development.
