Address of the President of the Republic of Kazakhstan Nursultan Nazarbayev to the People of Kazakhstan
Socio-Economic Modernization as Main Vector of Development of Kazakhstan
January 27, 2012
Dear people of Kazakhstan!
Dear deputies and members of the Government!
Ladies and gentlemen!
Kazakhstan has bravely entered the third decade of independence.
The new Parliament and reshuffled Government have begun their work.
In 2011, the country’s economy grew by 7.5 per cent.
The gross domestic product per capita exceeded 11,000 USD.
A substantial part of previously sold assets has been returned to state ownership.
Now key assets of the “Bogatyr”, Karachaganak, Kashagan fields, ENRC and “Kazakhmys” companies will be in state possession.
In the past I said “We sell according to the situation, and now it’s time to privatize, but we will return it in proper time”.
Therefore, now it is being returned. The oversight of shares is in the hands of the government of Kazakhstan. Now we will manage everything by ourselves.
The people of Kazakhstan became united, mature and strong.
However, we are living in a complicated time full of difficulties and contradictions.
You can see that the predicted global crisis has become a reality.
According to the experts, the new world crisis may last for 5-6 years.
Our concern is to prepare the economy for this challenge, and continue its diversification.
We are a state who strives to join the ranks of the high-income countries by 2015.
We will achieve this goal maintaining the unity and working with the same dedication.
