"We should move from words to deeds and prepare quality decisions concerning tourism by the Summit of the Heads of State of the Turkic Council, to be held in Kyrgyzstan on September 3,” Kazakh Minister of Culture and Sports Arystanbek Mukhamediuly said at a meeting of the ministers of tourism of the Turkic Council in Astana.

“One of them may be the decision to approve the joint tourism product entitled "Modern Silk Road" and jointly promote it at all international exhibitions,” he said.
