"Since its inception in January of 2012, the G-Global website has offered many ways for experts and the public to take part in the quest for a more equitable global financial system", said Murat

Karimsakov, a Chairman of the Executive Body of the Economic Club of Scientists. "Our new, revised portal will make expert and public participation even easier and more satisfying".

At the press conference, journalists and experts will be able to ask questions about the features of the new portal and its perspectives.

The press conference will also cover plans for the Sixth Astana Economic Forum in May of 2013.

Noted economists, representatives of the Kazakh government, diplomats, non-governmental organizations, academic-research organizations and business executives will be attending the press conference.

Key speakers besides Karimsakov will include: Murat Orunkhanov, Kazakhstan's Vice Minister of Education and Science; Anatoly Spitsyn, Director of the Eurasian Economic Community's Institute for Strategic Studies of Integration Problems; Aydar Abuov, Director of  Kazakhstan's International Center for Cultural and Religious Affairs; Hanon Barabaner, President of the Institute of Economics and Management in Estonia; and Mikhail Fedorov, President of Uralsk State Economic University and Deputy Chairman of the Economic Club of Scientists' Coordination Council.

The deadline for media accreditation for the press conference is November 13, 2012 until 13:00 pm.

NOTES TO EDITORS: President of the Republic of Kazakhstan Nursultan Nazarbayev came up with the idea of the G-Global communicative platform in late 2011 as a way of addressing the continuing international economic crisis and achieving a fairer global economic system.

The idea was to provide a platform for anyone interested in global economic affairs to discuss the problems of the international economic system and offer solutions for improving it.

The hope was that significantly expanding the number of those seeking solutions to the global economic problems would lead to ideas that policy-makers around the world had overlooked.

Since it started, G-Global has brought together thousands of experts and members of the public from around 150 countries.
