- Second, it is necessary to intensify coverage of the implementation of the “Nurly Zhol” Infrastructure Development Program. For example, it would be possible to speak about the positive aspects of the interface between the Nurly Zhol program and China's New Silk Road strategy. Within the framework of infrastructure development, 1600 km were built in the first year; 900 km of roads were constructed last year. I've talked about this a few times. But this fact was not covered in media, - the President of Kazakhstan said.
