There are more than 700 items in the collection - orders, medals, badges of honor and many other valuable awards. The completeness of the collection is such that in addition to the permanent exhibition we have the opportunity to present temporary exhibitions during the Museum lessons, as well as during field projects. The fund is highly popular, therefore, we are obliged to fill it up. At the end of August, a number of public awards were delivered. It has been promptly carried out their scientific description, and we made this catalogue quickly – said the Deputy Director of the Library Kulyaisha Aktayeva.

Key vectors of foreign policy strategy of Kazakhstan for the People's Republic of China and the Russian Federation are in detail presented in the analytical report "One belt – one way: geopolitical strategy of China". Assessment of the work was given by the Deputy Director of the library Botagoz Kaipova.

The report details the main principles and strategic goals within the framework of the project, but the practical nature and significance of this report is that a parallel with the initiative of the President of Kazakhstan "Nurly Zhol" was held. A detailed forecast-analytical report on the impact that this initiative will have on the entire Central Asian region is presented. The author has considered not only the positive moments, and has noted also the negative factors concerning development of this context that a key task which he puts forward from the point of view of very architectonics of foreign policy strategy of the states of the Central Asian region it is, of course, fight for leadership taking into account external factors of the European and American context.
