Welcoming the participants, the Secretary of State noted that official opening ceremonies of the celebration of jubilee events had already been held in Nur-Sultan and Almaty cities.

«As the Head of State noted in his State-of-the-Nation Address, now the goal is not to turn the celebration of these anniversaries into a waste of money, but to widely popularize the works of our geniuses and carry an educational and creative function. In light of these instructions, the members of state commissions and governmental agencies should take into consideration the opinions and suggestions of the public and compatriots widely disseminated in the media to promote the spiritual heritage of Abay and Al-Farabi.

At the end of the meeting, the central and local executive authorities were commissioned to take certain measures to prevent waste of funds in organization of jubilee events and ensure their high ideological and practical value.
