The program article of the President of Kazakhstan N.A. Nazarbayev "Prospection: modernization of public consciousness" had been discussed on 19th of April, 2017 in the conference hall of KazATC named after M. Tynyshpayev.
Doctor of PhD, professor of "History of Kazakhstan and Social-Humanities" department Myrzaly S.K. supported the main directions of the article and expressed his opinion regarding the introduction of Latin alphabet into the Kazakh language. Professor Myrzaly S.K. noted our famous writers, scientists and outstanding Kazakh people, such as Ahmet Baitursynov, Saken Seifullin and others, that introduced the Latin alphabet into the Kazakh language and used it. Also he noted that there are groups of people who are always against any changes and prevent the development of thinking, consciousness and education of citizens of the country. Professor Myrzaly S.K. shared the idea of translation of 100 the best books of the world into Kazakh.
Pro-rector for Educational Work Merzadinova G.T. noted that the implementation of the main directions of President N. Nazarbayev’s program will ensure high growth rates in all sectors of economy, infrastructure and education. The important factor in the development of our country is changing people's minds where the society begins to think and develop its thinking. Most developed countries have changed the thinking and consciousness of their citizens by introducing various changes. For example, today South Korea is one of the most developed countries in the world. They developed their country not by infrastructure, also by daily training of their employees. In this case, Gulnara Tynyshpayevna supported the idea of introducing the Latin alphabet into the Kazakh language. She also noted that it will develop the thinking of citizens of the RK and will promote to 30 developed countries of the world.
Pro-rector for Educational and Methodological Work Kuttybaev U.S. supported the directions in accordance with the article of the president of the Republic of Kazakhstan N.A. Nazarbayev and noted that it will support to develop learning of English which is a world language. Works of innovation around the world are primarily written in English. It is necessary to note that only 10% of new information is translated into Russian and only 1% into Kazakh. For example, Turkey introduced the Latin alphabet after our country and it gave a positive benefit to their development. Today Turkey is one of the most developed countries in the world.
