Dear residents and guests of the city!
I cordially congratulate you on the Day of the Capital!
Astana Day is a Kazakhstan-wide holiday today, which is celebrated by the whole multi-ethnic people of the country. By the 25th anniversary of Independence, our capital has been transformed into a city with a strong economy and developed industrial-innovative potential.
As noted by the Head of State, Nursultan Nazarbayev, "The shape of the capital is the shape of the nation". And this is true. Over these years, our prospering city has become a good example of the dynamics of development of independent Kazakhstan, a symbol of our state: a strong, fast growing, modern and ambitious, combining respect for the traditions of the past and the desire for future innovations. All this is the result of properly planned, organized work, productive hard work, unity and friendship.
Let me wish you a peaceful sky over your heads, achievement of greater heights and prosperity!
The Mayor of Astana Asset Issekeshev
