- The current package of reforms is a big step towards social development and stabilization in Kazakhstan. It is very important that the population receives such wide support from the state, including benefits on rent, lower taxes, education and micro loans. It also indicates that the overall level of Kazakhstan's economic development has grown. This is evidence of the great progress of Kazakhstan, the people and the President.
