KAZAKHSTAN: 20 YEARS OF PEACE, PROGRESS AND PROSPERITY
Tokyo, December 14: In celebration of the 20th
anniversary of Kazakhstan’s independence, the Embassy of Kazakhstan in Japan has
been broadcasting videos in Tokyo on large-scale displays at the busiest intersections,
from December 10 through December 24.
Titled “Kazakhstan: 20 Years of Peace, Progress and Prosperity,”
the video runs about 30 seconds and introduces the vast country’s natural
landscapes, modern buildings in the newly constructed capital Astana and
message of peace toward the future.
Among the images featured in the video are one of the nationalsymbols, the golden eagle, and a young girl skipping among various sites
holding aloft a golden balloon on a string.
The main message is that Kazakhstan is “a world leader
in financial stability, religious and ethnic harmony, environmental stewardship.”
Campaign is running in the busiest districts of Tokyo:
Ginza, Shibuya, Shinjuku and Yurakucho. Every day in prime time from 5 p.m. to
9 p.m., the video is on the screens at the famed “busiest pedestrian
intersection” by Shibuya Station, the East Exit of Shinjuku Station, the Ginza
4-chome crossing and the Yurakucho Marion commercial complex.
