I would like to congratulate all the people of Kazakhstan on this marvelous occasion. It is almost a round anniversary — 550 years of the Kazakh khanate, Kazakh statehood. It is amazing how big the path is traversed by Kazakhstan in these 5 and a half centuries. And it is marvelous to see how the country progresses its independence under the leadership of the President Nursultan Nazarbayev. I wish a better future and implementation of all programs that the government and the President advanced in order to make Kazakhstan be one of the 50 largest economies in the world. I think, the country has great opportunities to achieve this goal. On this opportune occasion I wish all the best and good luck to the people of Kazakhstan and express hopes that best future will come very soon.
