There will be the summit of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation in Science and Technology for the first time on September 10-11 in Astana.
In order to ensure proper traffic safety and law and order along the route of official delegations, traffic will be partially restricted in a number of transport highways of the capital.
Temporary restriction of vehicles traffic is planned on Kabanbay batyr Ave., Mangilik El Str, Kunayev Str., Dostyk Str., Turan Ave., Saryarka Ave., Abay Ave., Kenesary Str., Tauyelsyzdyk Ave. and Uly dala Str.
Considering the busyness of city streets and avoiding traffic jams, city authorities ask residents and guests of the capital to plan their trips in advance.
Recall that the initiative to convene an OIC summit belongs to the Head of State Nursultan Nazarbayev and was voiced at the XIII Summit of OIC in Istanbul in April 2016. The event is aimed at mobilizing the efforts of the Muslim world in the development of its scientific and technological potential.
All OIC member states have been invited to the OIC summit in Astana, and these are 55 countries, observer states and representatives of other international and regional organizations.
It is expected that on September 10 summit representatives will take part in the closing ceremony of the International Specialized Exhibition "Astana Expo-2017".
Kazakhstan has been a member of the OIC since 1995. In 2011-2012 Kazakhstan presided at the 38th session of the OIC Foreign Ministers Council, during which it initiated the establishment of the Islamic Organization for Food Security, whose headquarters will be located in Astana.
