100 prominent figures of the Turkic world will be identified


Within the framework of President Nursultan Nazarbayev's address on "Modernization of national identity", the International Turkic Academy (TWESCO) is going to make a list of 100 outstanding Turkic people who contributed to world civilization.

According to Darkhan Kydyrali, the head of the Academy, a large-scale project entitled "100 Prominent Figures of the Turkic World" aims to identify individuals who have left marks on human history. For this purpose the Academy plans to create a special website and conduct an international survey. Organizers note that a result of the survey will help to determine prominent individuals who have left a really important scientific or intellectual trace in a history.

It should be noted that today, the Astana Central Communications Service held a press briefing dedicated to the implemented activities of the Academy and plans for the future. At the briefing, head of the TWESCO Darkhan Kydyrali and member of the Council of Elders of the Turkic Council Adil Akhmetov gave detailed information about the organization's projects and international contacts and answered journalists' questions.
