Addressing the guests at the reception, charge d’affaires of Kazakhstan to Croatia Tolezhan Barlybayev noted under President Nursultan Nazarbayev’s wise leadership Kazakhstan has successfully overcome hardships of the last decade, formed as an independent state, created market economy, infrastructure and civil society institutes.

It was also said that the “Kazakhstan-2050” Development Strategy has mapped out a new route for the country to enter a new stage of its historical development. Strong nation, stability and sustainable economic growth securing the gradual promotion of living standards in Kazakhstan are indispensable in achieving the goals outlined in the strategy.

“Croatia’s accession to the EU has opened up new opportunities for the development of Kazakh-Croatian cooperation. Despite the fact that trade turnover between the two countries has doubled last year and reached $300 million, it still does not correspond to the potential of our economies,” the embassy’s press release reads.

Video materials, photo albums and books about Kazakhstan were presented at the reception. Big photo show themed “Modern Kazakhstan” of the Croatian amateur photographer from Zagreb organized on the eve of Kazakhstan’s Independence Day has sparked intense public interest.
