YERLAN BUZURBAYEV, PRESIDIUM MEMBER, ASSOCIATION OF ENVIRONMENTAL ORGANIZATIONS OF KAZAKHSTAN:
- At the moment we are working on organizing a separate session on the basis of the Astana Economic Forum, which will be dedicated to protecting the environment and solving the environmental problems. We wanted to take advantage of this G-Global platform in order to attract the maximum number of participants to discuss this issue and develop systemic strategic solutions for the environment not only in Kazakhstan, but also on the scale of the entire world community. Many know that our President initiated the creation of an international center of "green" technologies. We would like to take into account international experience and draw international experts when creating and promoting sounded initiatives.
