On 23 May 2018, the IRZ together with the Agency for Civil Service and Anti-Corruption in the Republic of Kazakhstan and the Kazakh Embassy organised a Round Table in Berlin on “20 Years of Anti-Corruption Legislation and the Agency for Civil Service in the Republic of Kazakhstan”.

The event was opened and moderated by the Ambassador for the Republic of Kazakhstan in Germany, Bolat Nussupov. To begin with, the President of the Agency, Alik Shpekbayev, presented the anti-corruption policy in the Republic of Kazakhstan and explained the key measures in place to fight corruption:

These measures are also set out in the National Plan “100 steps towards achieving the five reforms”. The new anti-corruption legislation, which came into force in 2016, governs the legal status of the fight against corruption, with the objective of implementing the anti-corruption policy in the Republic of Kazakhstan.

The Agency for Civil Service and Anti-Corruption plays an important role here. It is responsible for implementing the government policy in the public service sector and for the evaluation and monitoring of the quality of public services and in the fight against corruption. All in all, the development of an anti-corruption culture and the associated measures for fighting corruption play an important social and economic role in Kazakhstan.

German experts also took part in the event and reported on the situation in this field in Germany:

The other speakers at the event were Svetlana Savitskaya, Transparency International coordinator in the CIS states and Central Asia, and Virginie Coulloudon, Managing Director of the NGO “Your Public Value”.

The many different contributions reflected the various aspects of the fight against corruption in Germany and Kazakhstan. To conclude, the Round Table was a successful and profitable event for the German-Kazakh exchange of experiences in the field of the fight against corruption.
