Global project «New Future»

By Jakob Platts

The terrorist attacks in Paris, in the center of Europe-- new benchmark for history. The point, after which the world must radically change the rules of the global behavior. Erase all border disputes and conflicts and unite against a common, the most important threat - terrorism. 

 

Concrete actions are needed. A clear plan, which has already voiced the world.

 

According to Nazarbayev, the world’s most serious challenges — terrorism, “the implosion of states” and migration — are the result of economic crisis, poverty, illiteracy and unemployment. Noticeably, Nazarbayev doesn’t mention religious freedom or democracy, two areas his country is often criticized on.

 

Kazakh President Nursultan Nazarbayev from the rostrum of the United Nations took the initiative, the implementation of which, no matter how impossible it may seem at first glance, could put an end to rampant terrorism in the world, which becomes a truly global scale. Create a unified global network to counter international terrorism and extremism. Start Kazakh leader proposes the approval of the walls of the United Nations of a comprehensive document that would confirm the readiness of all countries to deal with the main enemy - terrorism. The enemy who does not have a specific person and way. In a war that has no clear front lines. And this is particularly dangerous.

 

Nazarbayev frames his ideas for the UN in familiar terms — that of a 30-year plan, which conveniently matches up with his ambitions for Kazakhstan to join the top 30 economies by 2050.

 

His five overarching points address economic issues, nuclear weapons, the erosion of international law and weakening of global institutions, terrorism, and lastly, sustainable energy. Surprisingly, perhaps, the final two only merited a single paragraph each, but the first three were elaborated at length.

 

Nazarbayev’s economic proposals include rebranding the UN Economic and Social Council as the Global Development Council to act as a global economic regulator promoting worldwide growth and stem the possibility of economic crises. He also spoke of creating a supranational currency.

 

With regard to nuclear weapons, Nazarbayev makes note of Kazakhstan’s continued commitment to a nuclear-free world. The country gave up the world’s fourth largest stockpile of nuclear weapons — which it had been left holding when the Soviet Union dissolved — and will be hosting a low-enriched uranium (LEU) bank on behalf of the IAEA, to provide LEU supply stability to countries using nuclear energy peacefully.

 

A separate item of the plan should be the solution to the economic problems of the world. Kazakh President rightly believes that the economic problems are largely provoked negative phenomena in the world, including terrorism. And in this issue also requires a system, a common approach. The idea of global anti-crisis plan for the President of Kazakhstan has become the object of special attention of the international community. The crises of the past years demonstrate the futility of the policy of isolationism. The world needs new rules of life. New, more effective tools for the impact of the current crisis and prevent future. And the scheme solving these problems, Nursultan Nazarbayev, stated very clearly. The world needs a common currency and a supranational global financial regulator, which should be valid, the Economic and Social Council of the United Nations. Only with more representative than the first composition to more effectively its activities.

 

Kazakhstan itself, the efforts of its president - could serve as a model of all the changes that President Nursultan Nazarbayev proposes to implement on a global scale. After Kazakhstani most stable state in the region. First of all, in the political sense. This is despite the geographical proximity to one of the key sources of instability in the continent - Afghanistan, whose destructive impact is not always possible to minimize and control the neighboring Kazakhstan.

 

Kazakhstan - our world in miniature. Peace in the near and far future. As a minimum, without nuclear weapons. Kazakhstan - the first country in history that the decision of their leader, closed the nuclear test site and voluntarily renounced the fourth largest nuclear arsenal. And to create a nuclear-free zone in Central Asia. Today the President of Kazakhstan proposes to repeat this experience already in the Middle East - there, where now comes the main danger to the security of the planet. Where endless wars generate uncontrolled migration, terrorism and chaos. Where such a measure is needed most.

 

As for the economy, Kazakhstan is now a visual aid for many of its theorists. Because of the complicated global crisis of 2008-2009 country Select with minimal losses. In the current crisis, more ambitious, Kazakhstan has developed and begun to implement a turnaround plan radical. Astana is not going to stop the symptoms of economic ills. The country has completely rebuilt the system so that it no longer gave failures. The "100 concrete steps," the President of Kazakhstan has caused a resonance his revolutionary approach to age-old problems of not only individual countries but the entire world. Experts around the world even talking about the need to take this program into service. Thus, the former Minister of Economic Development of Russia, and now the head of one of the largest banks, German Gref called the plan "one of the best documents that he had ever seen," noting that even after the implementation of the 50 steps Kazakhstan has become a fundamentally different state.

 

It must be admitted that Kazakhstan, in fact, today is a very different state. Not what he was twenty-five years ago, at the very beginning of the path of independence. Kazakhstan is already living in the new future, which says its president. In the new future, which has yet to step into the world. Project «New Future», which involves ensuring nuclear, energy, water and food security, trust, understanding and reform. President Nazarbayev is already implemented in Kazakhstan. Now he hopes the joint efforts of colleagues from other countries to expand the scale of the planet, resulting in Kazakhstan as an example of successful implementation of these reforms. The country is developing at a record pace. Even in periods when the external environment is not conducive to this. Today, Kazakhstan is a leader among the CIS countries for prosperity, the level of competitiveness and the business environment. This can be judged by the way Astana, year after year rises higher in the world rankings.

 

Having achieved such results, Astana aspire to new heights. Ahead of an ambitious goal - to enter the top thirty most developed countries in the world by 2050. And looking at how developing Kazakhstan today, under the able and very far-sighted leadership of its leader, there is no doubt that the country is required to achieve its objective.

 

Nazarbayev said that the UN has not been an active enough tool in the prevention and cessation of armed conflict and that it should respond to the realities happening now, not to what was relevant 70 years ago, that is, match to the current format. And in the new format, new players and new countries are emerging, like Kazakhstan - a country with a very high development rate. Such states should also have their say in the UN.

 

International experts drew attention to the fact that in the Kazakh leader’s speech all the initiatives and the formulation in which they were made, underscored the contribution that Kazakhstan could bring to the UN Security Council.

 

In this regard, Nazarbayev’s speech may play a role in the election of the country as UN Security Council non-permanent member. The President emphasized that Kazakhstan is a stable country with developed institutions, and has investment and economic attractiveness.
