Kazakhstan President Kassym-Jomart Tokayevattended today the ceremonial launch of the republican volunteer front-office BIRGEMIZ. The headquarters of the volunteer movement is located in the Art Hub Pavilion on the territory of the EXPO Business Center.
Speaking at the ceremony, the President addressed volunteers, calling the volunteer movement one of the most important tools to develop modern Kazakhstan. Furthermore, President Tokayev was awarded the honorary status of Ambassador of Kazakhstan Volunteer Movement.
