To the participants and guests of the 8th Eurasian Media Forum


I am glad to welcome all the participants and guests of the 8th Eurasian Media Forum!

This forum takes place during a complex period in the development of mankind. The international community is going through the most wide-ranging financial and economic crisis in history which broke out against the backdrop of an unstable international political situation.

Today, resolute steps by all countries are needed to develop new forms of international cooperation and interaction, which can stabilize the development of the world’s economy and overcome global disproportions.

Kazakhstan has been and remains a venue for dialog about the most pressing problems of modernity. We are ready to participate actively in the search for solutions to the global economic crisis and in creating a new global architecture.

This is the Eighth Eurasian Media Forum in Almaty bringing together respected experts, famous politicians and journalists. Here, the most relevant international problems are traditionally discussed and new approaches are developed to solving those problems.

The idea behind the forum is in line with the strategy of development of our country which is that further development of the modern world is only possible through dialog and partnership, mutual understanding and respect.

I wish all the participants of the Eurasian Media Forum constructive work, fruitful discussions and more optimism in our tough times.


Nursultan Nazarbayev
