IT’S TIME TO CREATE A SINGLE ELECTRONIC LIBRARY OF ASIAN WRITERS’ – K. TOKAYEV
This was stated by President Kassym-Jomart Tokayev at the First Forum of Asian Countries’ Writers.
“Today I would like to focus on a number of important issues that will be the main issue of this forum. Eastern tradition of globalization is becoming more and more real. For example, now only the economic significance of the Great Silk Road is emphasized. In fact, it does not take into account the fact that it has the power to tie whole civilizations. Today, along with the advanced economics of Asia, literature, art and education are in the forefront, “the Head of State said.
According to the President, the Asian Forum should become an important dialogue platform for creative community.
“I believe that this important event should be held in Asian countries. Problems that worry mankind should be settled in the same area. It is especially important to develop Asia as a world center for spiritual development. Therefore, the creation of conditions for modernization of literary processes is one of the main tasks. To this end, it is desirable to award a literary award “Asia Alyby”. We should try to increase the reputation of this award, as well as popular prizes in the world, ” said. K.Tokayev.
The President also touched upon the creation of a unified platform for the work of the Asian writers.
“It’s time to create a single electronic library of Asian writers’ works. This is to show a precious treasure of the invaluable works of Asia. I hope that the work on the implementation of such good initiatives will unite our writers and bring Asian literature to a new level. I wish you success in today’s forum, “the President of Kazakhstan said.
