The fight against corruption offenses is one of the most important priorities of the state policy of Kazakhstan, which is possible not only with the participation of state bodies, but also with NGOs and the public. Along with this, it is important to constantly improve anti-corruption measures.

The importance of holding such large-scale conferences was emphasized by Igor Rogov.

The legislation is being improved in the republic, the measure of responsibility for corruption violations is being tightened, information and preventive activities are being strengthened. However, new approaches and improved anti-corruption mechanisms are required. Therefore, such large dialogue platforms as the ongoing International Conference are very useful. After all, the exchange of best practices and experience, discussion of problematic issues helps to increase the effectiveness of anti-corruption measures,” he said.
