Presentation in London on current situation in Kazakhstan

Presentation in London on current situation in KazakhstanThe program of the Presentation on current situation in Kazakhstan and experience of Kazakhstan on fighting corruption-related crimes by the Agency of the Republic of Kazakhstan for Economic and Corruption-Related Crimes will be held on Tuesday, June 1, 2010.

Corruption as a social phenomenon is a serious problem to any society and typical to all countries in the world, including those with developed economies and long-standing democratic traditions.

Today the anti-corruption system is not separated geographically as to be European or Asian. Europe and Asia represent common geographical and political space connected by historical, economic and cultural ties. Therefore it is essential to combine the efforts of all continents including Euro-Atlantic and Eurasian regions in combating corruption and all other corruption-related crimes.

Counteraction to the corruption is an important priority in the governmental policy of Kazakhstan. Since the first days of independence, corruption along with common crimes has become a serious challenge to the state government.

Today we want to relay to you what Kazakhstan has been doing in this area.
