Thanks to the balanced and open policy of the First President of the country, Yelbassy Nursultan Nazarbayev, we have earned the respect and trust of the entire international community. Large-scale reforms and systematic industrialisation of the economy have ensured the balanced development of every region of the country, and the oil and gas industry has become the foundation and key driver of economic transformation.
The course taken by Yelbassy is being successfully continued by the head of state, Kassym-Jomart Tokayev, who also attaches great importance to the development of the oil and gas sector.
The current impressive success of young and independent Kazakhstan was made possible by the selfless work of all oil workers — people who are sincerely dedicated to their work and dream of a bright future for their native land,” Alik Aidarbayev, Chairman of KMG’s Management Board, said in his speech.
