Kazakhstan should possess all atributes of an innovation-driven country, KazTAG reports citing Kazakhstan President Nursultan Nazarbayev.
“It is already clear that in the coming decade all the countries will be divided into three groups by their innovativeness. We all want to make it into the first group of countries with high innovative and creative potential. Candidates wishing to ascent this group are now in the second one; they want to move forward. But there are a lot of outsiders,” Nazarbayev said at the Innovative Kazakhstan – 2020 forum hosted by Almaty Park of Information Technologies.
“If we start working well today, we will be able to get into the first group. By 2020 Kazakhstan has to possess all the atributes and characteristics of an innovation-driven country,” said the President.
Earlier Kazakhstan’s Prime Minister Karim Massimov had a conversation with a Russian tycoon, President of the Skolkovo Foundation Viktor Vekselberg, to discuss cooperation with Skolkovo.
