This is evidenced by the chairmanship of Kazakhstan in the OSCE and the Summit held in Astana by this organization in December 2010. The country’s significant initiative was the launch and the development of the CICMA project, the Asian counterpart of the OSCE.

Kazakhstan’s workmanship as the chairman of the leading Organization of Islamic Cooperation – the OIC– receives positive feedback.

Within the EAEU, the countries secure the free movement of goods, services, capital and labor force, and pursue a coordinated, coherent and unified policy in the sectors of the economy.
