- In his interview, the President raised questions on the development of tourism in our country. The expo introduced Kazakhstan to many guests and of course, they will have an interest. Kazakhstan should occupy its own niche. Apart from our historical places, our natural landscapes, mountains, steppes, deserts, etc. there is still a concept of hunting tourism.
