When Kazakhstan took over the presidency of the UN Security Council, it set out ambitious work programme, which reflects the spirit of the UN’s Agenda for Sustainable Development, especially in the Goal 16, i.e. promote the peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development, provide the access to justice and build effective and accountable institutions. Kazakhstan implements this major goal by positioning itself at the heart of global diplomacy and international activities. This is not only supported by its role as a non-permanent member of the Security Council, a member of the UN, but also the role of Astana in many international events.  One of the example is the Manifesto “The World. The 21st Century” and another is the Six Congress of the Leaders of World and Traditional Religions to be held in Astana. Moreover, the Astana successfully organized the ‘Energy of the Future’ World EXPO 2017’, and the Astana Economic Forum welcomed many participants from various countries. Due to breakthroughs in innovative development, extensive international integration and implementation of institutional reforms, Kazakhstan is not the top 30 of the world’s strongest economies.   During the Astana Economic Forum, the Kazakh leader pointed to five global trends and the need to establish the G-Global platform under the UN. The transformations worldwide and new economic model promote the digitisation, and the country’s Digital Kazakhstan programme leading its efforts in this area. Digitisation although can facilitate cyber crime, it develop new mechanisms that bring important changes to financial markets.   The Kazakh President also sees the important role of green energy or renewable energy sources. The Kazakh leader also notices the new challenges posed by growing global population and longer lift expectancy, e.g. increasing demand for food. Another global trend is the transformation of the labour market, which requires highly qualified workers. This pose risks for social systems and national economies, which is also the concern of the International Labour Organisation.   In order to address these global challenges, the Kazakh leader noted that current international platforms are not sufficient and the G-Global could provide additional support and role to promote sustainable development. Former UN Secretary-General and current chair of the Boao Forum for Asia (BFA) Ban Ki-moon, and Former French President Francois Hollande expressed concern about US withdrawal from the climate agreement, as well as stressed the need to address sustainable development. The leading role of Kazakhstan in green economy and its achievements are recognized and the Kazakh leader’s proposal of G-Global at the level of the UN also has received support.
