Chairman of the Agency for Civil Service Affairs and Anti-Corruption Alik Shpekbayev met with Chargé d'affaires of Iraq in Kazakhstan Yunus Salim Sarhan Al-Shahman. That was reported by the press service of the agency, reports BNews.kz.

 

The Agency will consider the Iraqi request for the possibility of organizing training of their civil servants on the basis of the Academy of Public Administration under the President of the Republic of Kazakhstan. The training is aimed at the basics of public administration, the implementation of the Anti-Corruption Strategy, project management, leadership and strategic management. The initiative will be implemented within the framework of the memorandum, which is planned to be signed between the two sides.

 

“Training of Iraqi colleagues in Kazakhstan will improve the quality of public administration in the international context by broadcasting Kazakhstan`s experience and professionalization of civil service,” Shpekbayev said.

 

Salim Yunus thanked the chairman of the agency for the meeting. He expressed confidence in the construction (establishment) of a professional state machine in the two countries.

 

The Iraqi side noted that corruption has become a complex social, political and economic phenomenon. It destroys democratic institutions. In this connection, Yunus informed about the functioning of the Iraqi Commission of Integrity, formerly known as the Commission on Public Integrity (CPI)

 

"The Commission's mission is to prevent and investigate corruption at all levels of the Government of Iraq throughout the country. The Commission seeks to encourage and promote an open, honest and accountable government through public educational and enlightening programs that will give the citizens an opportunity to report about corruption through anonymous means," said Salim Yunus.

 

Both sides expressed readiness for close cooperation and fighting corruption.
