“... Now, especially in the context of a global pandemicа, both Kazakhstani society as a whole and the Civil Alliance in particular have a number of challenges, and only by joining together we can cope with difficulties and continue the development of civic activity in the country. Civil society is transforming and it is important that the Alliance changes with it, while remaining a reliable partner of business and government. Given that civil forums in the regions and the traditional IX Republican Civil Forum are ahead of us, it is important for us to qualitatively assess the current situation in the field of NGOs, to develop concrete proposals and new initiatives.
I hope that in reality we will be able to claim the status of a strategic partner of the central and local executive state bodies in the initiative of President Tokayev to implement the concept of the Listening State.
