Prior to his speech President Nazarbayev launched a new educational television channel called «Bilim» which was specially established under the national program on digital broadcasting. The aim of the channel is to promote science and attract talented people to science.
In his interactive lecture entitled “Kazakhstan on its way to a knowledge society” President Nazarbayev shared his visions about what should be done in the spheres of education, science, economy, and politics for the country to continue its successful advancement.
“Over the past 20 years of its successful and sustainable development, Kazakhstan achieved its main historical goal. For the first time in the history of our people a new state was established on the Kazakh land. I have to say that acknowledged state sovereignty is a huge and important resource of any state,” the President highlighted.
