ASKHAT ORALOV, HEAD OF YOUTH POLICY DEPARTMENT:
- There are many talented young people in our country, who dance, sing, compose and play musical instruments. Many of them arrived here especially to participate in the festival. Therefore, such multi-format events are necessary to support the youth. I think the festival was very interesting, productive and eventful.
