Kazakhstan has implemented all goals of its presidency in the Organization for Security and Cooperation in 2010.

Astana has hosted the Summit of the Heads of State following which the Astana Declaration of the OSCE has been adopted.

Dear Kazakhstanis!

The upcoming 2011 is a year of the 20th anniversary of the Independence of Kazakhstan.

We will continue to realize our plans on technical modernization of our economy.

New industrial, small and medium business facilities will be built. Hundreds of thousands of people will get jobs.

Under my instruction, pensions and allowances will be increased by 30 percent from January 1 and salaries of public workers will be increased by 30 percent from July 1, 2011.

This will be done at a time when the majority of the world’s countries reduce such expenditures.

New kindergartens, schools and sports facilities will be built for our children.

The network of modern medical centers and hospitals will be extended.

Highways will reduce distances in our country.

I am sure the upcoming year of 2011 will increase the welfare of every family.

Dear friends!

The New Year eve is the warmest family holiday!

This minute a holiday table is served in every family.

Let well-being come to every family in New Year!

I wish you health, peace and welfare!

Happy New Year to all of you!
