After “The Era of Independence” book presentation, intellectuals from Moscow and Astana held a teleconference. The experts were able to share their opinions on the book’s role for the younger generation.
RUSLAN AUSHEV, FORMER PRESIDENT OF INGUSHETIA:
- The book is very useful. I think that this book should be on the table of every person who cares about the future of his country, region, land, district or republic. And I hope that Kazakhstan will take its rightful place among such economically successful countries as South Korea, Malaysia or Singapore.
Analysts note that “The Era of Independence” book takes a special place among other Nursultan Nazarbayev’s book. Experts believe that it is the accurate document on the history of Kazakhstan. They identify the book as Kazakhstan’s modern encyclopedia.
IGOR ROGOV, DEPUTY EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR, FOUNDATION OF KAZAKHSTAN’S FIRST PRESIDENT:
- Kazakhstan is certainly a special phenomenon. Experts give it such titles as “Kazakhstan’s wonder”, “Nazarbayev’s model”, “Kazakhstan’s path” or “Kazakhstan’s trend.” Researchers are interested in the opinions and throwbacks of the president who laid the foundation for the future events. They like the book’s first-person narration by the author of the state project titled “Independent Kazakhstan.”
IRINA ILYINA, DIRECTOR, INSTITUTE OF REGIONAL STUDIES, RUSSIA:
- In this book, I found a lot of important educational information that we definitely need to teach to our students who study public and municipal administration.
A photo exhibition titled “Astana, the Pearl of the Great Steppe” opened at the book presentation to mark Astana’s 20th anniversary. Such photo exhibitions will also be held in the capitals of the European Union – Madrid, Paris, London, Berlin as well as in Beijing.
