If so, I think we will implement successful projects in the future. For now, I can't say anything about specific projects. But we will do everything so that he likes Kazakhstan, so that he sees a great future in the field of joint technology. We will work," said the minister before the joint session of the Parliament chambers.

He also said that more than 10 million people used the application founded by Pavel Durov in Kazakhstan.
