Today was the international scientific-practical conference on the theme “The Strategy of the First President of the Republic of Kazakhstan – Elbasy N. Nazarbayev – the driver of regional development.” The conference was held within the framework of the traveling exhibition project of the Library of the First President of the Republic of Kazakhstan – Elbasy “N.Nazarbayev: era, person, society”.
The main purpose of the conference was to present the significance of the strategy of the First President of the Republic of Kazakhstan – Elbasy N. Nazarbayev on the development of Kazakhstan and expanding knowledge about the development of the economic, socio-political, spiritual and cultural potential of Western Kazakhstan as a factor of successful regional development in the process of discussing the opinions of the foreign and local expert community.
At the opening of the conference the Akim of Aktobe oblast, doctor of economic sciences, Professor Berdibek Saparbayev made a welcoming speech.
“From the very first days of Independence, Elbasy set a clear goal – Kazakhstan should become a prosperous state. It was not an easy task, because there were many difficulties that our people overcame by their unity and cohesion. Today, our country is on the path of sustainable development. The successes that Kazakhstan has achieved in the last quarter of a century are directly connected with the name of the First President, Nursultan Nazarbayev. “Grow and prosper, fertile land – Aktobe” – once wished Elbasy. And today our oblast is actively developing by the solid work of Aktobe residents. The president always says that where there is no agreement, but only fragmentation, there can be neither national values nor common goals. Therefore, the current scientific conference is so important. The main goal is to strengthen the statehood, unity of the people, enlightenment and education of the younger generation,” said he. Also, the oblast Akim made the message to the youth: “Every citizen should know the history of his country. In this regard, I ask you to visit the exhibition of the Library of the First President of the Republic of Kazakhstan, where you will be acquainted with unique artifacts, books, which present the history of our state. ”
Amerkhan Rakhimzhanov, the first deputy director of the Elbasy Library, Doctor of Political Sciences, Professor, made a presentation on the development of the regions of Kazakhstan by President Nursultan Nazarbayev’s Strategy for the Development of Regions of Kazakhstan.
– Only 27 years have passed since the Republic of Kazakhstan gained the status of an independent state. From the point of view of the historical process, this is not a significant period. However, the pace of change in the economic, political, and social spheres of the country has increased so much that the scale of transformation cannot fail to amaze those who witnessed the first steps of the young Kazakhstani state in the early 1990s. The main postulate of the policy pursued by the President of the Republic of Kazakhstan has always been the preservation of peace and harmony in the country. I think all of you will agree that one international scientific conference cannot fully reveal the role of the personality of the First President of Kazakhstan, the founder of the new state Nursultan Abishevich Nazarbayev in strengthening the sovereignty and statehood of Kazakhstan said Amerkhan Muratpekovich.
The Rector of Zhubanov University, Doctor of Philology, Professor Bauyrzhan Erdembekov, also greeted conference participants. “Today, within the framework of the implementation of the exhibition project “N.Nazarbayev: Epoch, Personality, and Society” we are holding at ARSU named after K. Zhubanov International Scientific-Practical Conference “The Strategy of the First President of the Republic of Kazakhstan – Elbasy N. Nazarbayev – the driver of regional development.” For the political and cultural life of the country, such events held in different regions of our republic become landmark events. May all the ideas, suggestions and theories that will be heard at today’s conference serve for the
qualitative implementation of the tasks set by the President to the people of Kazakhstan” addressed the head of the university.
