One of the speakers was the First Deputy Chairman of the Nur Otan Party. Maulen Ashimbayev dwelt on three initiatives which drastically changed Kazakhstan back in the day.
I am talking about initiatives that continue to exert a strategic influence on the development of our country. One of them is the transfer of our capital from Almaty to Akmola and the formation of our beloved Astana. It was a very courageous decision for that time. These were years of deep economic, financial, social crisis. Salaries were not paid, jobs were reduced, high unemployment, terrible inflation. And during these years, the Head of State, along with the Bolashak program, decided to transfer the capital. Already after 20 years, we can say that this step had enormous economic, social, political influence and positive consequences for our country, "said Maulen Ashimbayev.
Among other important initiatives, the First Deputy Chairman of the Nur Otan party called the Bolashak program and the modernization of public consciousness. According to him, the idea of the Head of State "Ruhani Zagiru" consists of two important components that are not inferior to each other in importance and influence on the further development of the nation.
The first is the preservation of the national code, the in-depth study of history, the strengthening of historical and cultural identity. 'Seven Facets of the Great Steppe' Article by the Head of State serves for this. The second part is no less important. These are the Kazakhstani society adaptation to modern trends in the development of qualities, which are in demand in the modern world, and the modernization of our nation as a whole," the speaker is sure.
Answering the audience's questions, Maulen Ashimbayev also told about three crucial personal traits of the President of Kazakhstan. The first one is Nursultan Nazarbayev's constant striving for self-development and self-improvement, and willingness to always learn, go forward and not rest on laurels, learn new trends, new directions. The second quality is a great sense of responsibility and insistence on high standards. The third is punctuality. This indicates the Head of State's high responsibility and respect for people.
