DESTINATION KAZAKHSTAN Track one diplomacy of Kazakhstan One of the most important aspects of the investment appeal of the country is track one diplomacy. Today we talk to Erlan Idrissov, Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Kazakhstan, on the visa policy, diplomatic policy and on innovations to the visa system of our country. Erlan Abilfaizovich, could you tell us about the diplomatic policy of Kazakhstan for the years coming, please? The foreign policy of Kazakhstan will still be based on the principles of balance, consistency, realism, and foreseeability. As provided for by the Concept of the Foreign Policy of Kazakhstan for 20142020, approved by the President of Kazakhstan N. Nazarbayev in January 2014, our key priorities in foreign policy remain the same, i.e. partnering in development with our neighbours – Russia, China, and Central Asian countries as well as the USA, the European Union, and Asian countries. Moreover, today our Republic is seeking to develop cooperation with countries from other regions of the world – we have established diplomatic relations with more than 140 countries. Our diplomacy is multiple-vector; we will continue strengthening mutually beneficial and friendly relations with all the countries in the world and international organizations following consistent, balanced, and foreseeable foreign policy. Generally, the foreign policy of our country focuses on providing a favourable external environment for successful solutions of major local issues. All our efforts and policies on the external front are, first of all, aimed at assisting in economy development, building modern political institutions, consolidating civil society, modernizing the law enforcement structure, strengthening the independent judicial system. Some healthy ambitions and a desire to find a worthy place in the global community’s environment of relentless competition are not foreign to Kazakhstan. Therefore, among the new goals in foreign policy we note the country’s transition to a green way of development, becoming one of the top 30 developed countries in the world. The crucial elements to achieve these goals include the high quality preparation and execution of the international exhibition EXPO 2017 in Astana concerning The Energy of the Future, as well as the introduction of environmental and energy-saving standards and technologies. The active participation of Kazakhstan in the operation of transnational institutions both at the regional and global level also contributes to strengthening the international authority of our country. As a UN member, Kazakhstan has taken up a high-profile position in the last few years, in regards to such a high authority institution. The entire set of Kazakhstani initiatives was supported by the global community, promoting a positive international image of the country. Today, we can Erlan Idrissov, Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Kazakhstan 12 world monitor
