The UN Secretary General congratulated the President of the Republic of Kazakhstan on successful organization of the 18th General Assembly of the UN World Tourism Organization held last month in Astana.
The message reads, in particular:
“This was the first time that Kazakhstan received the major legislative body of a United Nations specialized agency in its new capital city, and confirms your country’s growing role in the international arena and as a supporter of the United Nations system.
More broadly, by hosting such an event, Kazakhstan has helped Central Asia to showcase its immense cultural and natural wealth while supporting its tourism sector, thus contributing to recovery from the current economic crisis.
Let me offer my best wishes for the continued success of the cooperation between Kazakhstan and the United Nations. Please accept the assurances of my highest consideration.”
