Kazakhstan President: In 2017 the green zone of Astana to reach Borovoe

ASTANA. KAZINFORM - In spite of the revision of the budget, this year's wages and social benefits will be made at the existing level, this has been stated by President of Kazakhstan Nursultan Nazarbayev at a meeting with active population of the city of Astana, the press service of Akorda reported.
"Over the years of independence, people of Kazakhstan have made great achievements which admire our citizens and surprise guests from around the world. Kazakhstan has gained respect of all other states. The fact that we have signed the documents on completion of talks over an expanded Partnership and Cooperation Agreement, as well as documents on the completion of bilateral negotiations between Kazakhstan and the EU regarding our country's accession to the World Trade Organisation, shows the European Union's trust to our country," said the Head of State.

Nursultan Nazarbayev also noted that Kazakhstan is the only country in the Central Asian region which has been invited to participate in the representative summit of "Asia-Europe" forum in Milan.

The Head of State noted that today many countries face major challenges related to the difficulties in the world economy.

"Mutual sanctions of Russia and the European countries as well as the situation in Ukraine negatively affect the process of acute instability. Russia is our strategic partner, the next door neighbor, with whom we have close ties. Worsened situation in the Russian economy would indirectly affect Kazakhstan," said Nursultan Nazarbayev.
The President of Kazakhstan said that the Government is taking all necessary measures to prevent these trends. In spite of the revision of the budget, this year's wages and social benefits will be made at the existing level, stressed the Head of State.

Nursultan Nazarbayev said that social stability and equality of all citizens are inviolable principles of our country. He noted that no one should feel discriminated against at any situation.
According to the words of N. Nazarbayev, next year the country will celebrate the 550th anniversary of the Kazakh state.

"Kerey and Zhanybek founded the Kazakh khanate in 1465. Today our country preserves the traditions of centuries-old friendship and peaceful coexistence with all neighbor countries. We should preserve these relations forever," said Nursultan Nazarbayev.

Kazakhstan President also outlined the tasks set before the Astana city authorities.

"We should continue to work in order to make Astana more beautiful, cozy and comfortable. The main task for the city's administration is the organization of the international exhibition "EXPO-2017". There will be created an entirely new center of culture and science," he said.
