B.Sagintayev: Kazakhstan ready to develop action plan for coop with OECD
Prime Minister of Kazakhstan Bakytzhan Sagintayev has sent a video address to participants of “OECD Eurasia Week 2016” Forum, held in Paris; he noted the successes of Kazakhstan in the implementation of reforms for joining the 30 most developed countries of the world.
B.Sagintayev noted that since our independence, our country has established itself as a reliable and strong economic and political partner.
According to the World Bank’s Doing Business ranking, Kazakhstan placed 35th among 190 countries in the world, gaining the status of the best performer in terms of the implementation of progressive reforms for two years in a row. This demonstrates the commitment the Government of Kazakhstan to the ideas of building an effective system of business environment and state regulation.
In 2015, our country was chosen by the OECD as one of the three partners to launch the Country cooperation program. The Country program is a strategically important stage of bilateral cooperation that underscores the aspiration of Kazakhstan to implement the best OECD practices and to achieve its long-term goal to be listed among the 30 most developed countries of the world.
Prime Minister of Kazakhstan recalled that in support of this Country program, last year the President of the Republic of Kazakhstan initiated a National Plan � 100 Concrete Steps to support five institutional reforms covering most aspects of the state development such as modernization of the civil service, strengthening of the justice system and rule of law, diversification of the economy, social modernization and increasing the accountability of the state.
B.Sagintayev noted that in the short time since the beginning of the OECD Country program we have adopted 59 laws, aimed at improving the institutional environment in Kazakhstan.
