President Nazarbayev delivers annual Address to the People of Kazakhstan

“Kazakhstan’s further industrialization on the basis of our joining the community of the world’s 50 most competitive nations and forming a select group of 30 corporate leaders should remain our primary goal”, the President emphasized.

On the political front, “political parties, NGOs and other civil society institutions” should play a more active role “in developing an up-to-date political system in Kazakhstan”, which should combine “universally recognized principles of democratic development and values of our society. "Our country has achieved a new level of international recognition. OSCE’s unanimous decision on electing Kazakhstan the chair of the organization in 2010 is a paramount evidence” of the country’s growing importance, President Nazarbayev said speaking of Kazakhstan’s foreign policy.

To support Kazakhstan’s new and important role as the chairman of Europe’s largest security organization, President Nazarbayev initiated a new program, “Road to Europe”, which will facilitate “promoting economic cooperation, attracting new technologies and management expertise and also assist in improving our legislation and setting up the agenda for our chairmanship in the OSCE”.

The republic also plans to further strengthen its position as an active participant in the international fight against terrorism and religious extremism.

The Embassy of Kazakhstan will shortly launch a Special News Bulletin to cover the Address in detail.
