If a nation does not know its history, if the country loses its history, then its citizens have nowhere to go.

Address of the President of the Republic of Kazakhstan. Expert opinion – V. Shepel - e-history.kz
On November 11, 2014 the President of Kazakhstan N. Nazarbayev delivered a message to the people of Kazakhstan and announced new economic policy of the state named “Nurly Zhol – a Way to the Future”.

Web portal e-history. kz prepared a number of exclusive interviews with scientific intellectuals about his new address to the people of Kazakhstan.


Vladimir Shepel, Honored Worker of Kazakhstan, Advisor to the Director of the Archive of the President of the Republicof Kazakhstan shared his opinion.

The address of the President is a further important page in the history of independent Kazakhstan. Again, the President surprised us by his broad vision, courage, and good judgment. Let’s remember the early and mid-1990s.

We lived at that times and realized that the country was on the knees after the collapse of the Soviet Union. There were deep crisis, unemployment, endless inflation, and protest movements. Nursultan Nazarbayev said the following:

“I do not promise you mountains of gold in the near future, but be sure, if we work hardly and implement market reforms we undoubtedly will draw the winner”.

Since that time Nursultan Nazarbayev repeatedly initiated new reforms, long-term programs and called upon everyone make a valuable contribution to economic development.

As a result, and sometimes it is difficult to believe, welfare of civilization, social prosperity and harmony are the real achievement of young independent republic.

Nowadays all mass media tell about world situation: many developed countries are at low-water mark, some head into recession. World economy stagnates, and we feel it because Kazakhstan’s economy is deeply integrated into global processes and has shown positive results.

The President Nursultan Nazarbayev always relies on patriotism of Kazakhstan’s people. And they have never betrayed him.

Our country confidently reaches all the set targets. Nursultan Nazarbayev announced his decision to give money to support economic and social reforms and programs. And the most important thing is that his message is addressed to people with certain problems.

Few years ago my granddaughter got married, and they still rent apartment as it is impossible to buy their own property because of high prices. She was so happy when read the address of the President where he said about assistance to young families in purchasing apartments.

This is the value of new economic policy named “Nurly Zhol — Way to the Future” because, I emphasize again, it reflects peoples’ dreams.

Both Kazakhstan and its capital are famous in the world as a new Asian miracle which demonstrates successful example of mutual support between the state and the nation.

The way to the future defined by our Leader of the Nation will be successful as well without any reefs, storms and shocks.
