December 1, Day of the First President of Kazakhstan

Since 2012, December 1 is officially marked in Kazakhstan’s calendar as the Day of the First President of the Republic of Kazakhstan. December 1 is the anniversary of Nursultan Nazarbayev’s election by a popular vote as the first President of Kazakhstan in 1991, which was followed by the Declaration of Independence on December 16.

In many countries of the world, the first leaders and founding fathers play a crucial role in development of a country, in uniting a nation and positioning it on the international arena as a responsible member of the global community. The United States, for example, has been celebrating George Washington’s birthday � which is now called Presidents’ Day � as an official holiday since 1885.

Since the first days of independence of Kazakhstan, President Nazarbayev’s strategic vision and forward looking policy helped to shape Kazakhstan’s modern multiethnic society, making diversity and inclusiveness one of its biggest strengths. Promotion of the inter-religious dialogue through President’s initiative of hosting Congress of Leaders of World and Traditional Religions is another testament to the commitment of Kazakhstan to strengthen human rights and universal freedoms around the world.

Economic reforms and the ambitious infrastructure and industrial programs make Kazakhstan today one of the most favorable countries for foreign investment and trade. According to the World Bank, GDP per capita has grown from about USD 1,500 to over USD 13,000. Kazakhstan has reached a 12-fold growth of foreign trade turnover and a 20-fold increase in industrial output. In 2015, Kazakhstan joined the World Trade Organization and has set a goal to be among the 30 most developed countries by 2050.
