The Independence Day of the Republic of Kazakhstan

December 17, 2013

22 years have passed since the day when the Constitutional Law “On the State Independence of the Republic of Kazakhstan” was adopted. At a solemn meeting dedicated to the Independence Day, President Nursultan Nazarbayev said that on 16 December 1991, a new star – the Republic of Kazakhstan had emerged in the constellation of the world’s nations.

“We have implemented a great mission – we pioneered Independence.Time flies. Today, we look at the events that occurred right after the birth of independent Kazakhstan as something receding into eternal history. Our judgements about that time are based on their comparison with current great achievements. Twenty-two years ago, we could only dream of raising our economy. And this year, Kazakhstan is among the 50 most competitive countries in the world”, said Nursultan Nazarbayev .

Kazakhstan celebrates its 22nd year as a sovereign state with great achievements recognized by the world community. It is not accidental that a year ago the President called his state-of-the-nation address “Strategy “Kazakhstan- 2050″ – a new policy of the established state”
