Transition to the Latin script will make Kazakhstan and its citizens more competitive, member of the Latvian parliament Sergey Potapkin said after reading the program article by the Kazakh President ‘Course towards Future: Modernization of Public Consciousness.’
SERGEY POTAPKIN, LATVIAN SEIMAS DEPUTY:
- Kazakhs is a developing Turkic nation that needs to think about its position in the new developing world. Kazakhstan’s strategies in this regard seem coherent and viable. Kazakh young people’s predisposition to learning foreign languages is good and the transition to the Latin script will give them even more advantages and, in fact, will make Kazakhstan a multilingual nation.
Along with economic and political modernization, Kazakhstan pays particular attention to spiritual matters. It is very important in the age of globalization, Chinese expert Sui Tao says.
SUI TAO, SPOKESPERSON, INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS ACADEMY, CHINA:
- I have thoroughly read Nursultan Nazarbayev’s article. One of the most important moments in the article is the transition to the Latin script. I think that this idea is very important and a useful measure. The Latin script will let Kazakhstan citizens adapt to the current events much faster and will facilitate in using new technologies.
