ASTANA -- Representatives of governmental agencies and of NGOs, as well as of diplomatic missions and the academic community, participated in the international conference "Countering Corruption amid Globalisation," in Astana, Kazinform reported Friday (December 7), citing President Nursultan Nazarbayev's press office.
Kazakhstan has established its own model for a corruption-free society, based on international experience and taking into account the UN Convention against Corruption and Kazakhstan's national traits, Secretary of State Gulshara Abdykalikova told the conference.
"In developing the national system for fighting corruption, we thoroughly consider global trends and the advanced experience of developed countries and of international organisations like the UN, OECD and OSCE," she said.
Modernisation of the battle against corruption is part of the Five Institutional Reforms programme and the country's 2015-2025 Anti-Corruption Strategy, she said.
