2018 New Year’s Message

2018 New Year’s Message

On behalf of the entire Mission of the United States of America to Kazakhstan, I want to wish the people of Kazakhstan the very best of health, happiness and prosperity in 2018. The past year was a particularly exciting and successful one for our countries’ relations, including many cultural, business and people-to-people exchanges during the unforgettable 2017 Astana Expo. From American cowboys to Latino singers we were pleased to bring many American performers to Kazakhstan to demonstrate the diversity and richness of our culture and for our guests to enjoy the tremendous hospitality of the people, the vitality of the culture and the beauty of Kazakhstan. These exchanges have strengthened the foundation for future engagements. I am sure 2018 will continue to bring our countries closer together through more exchanges in even more areas. Again I wish all Kazakhstanis peace and joy in the New Year!!
