KOKSHETAU. KAZINFORM A meeting of the regional anti-corruption commission chaired by Akim of Akmola region Yermek Marzhikpayev has been held in Kokshetau. Dmitry Malakhov, First Deputy Chairman of the Anti-Corruption Agency of the Republic of Kazakhstan, who arrived in the region, took part in the meeting, Kazinform correspondent reports with reference to the press service of the region’s akim.
“The concept of the anti-corruption policy of Kazakhstan is a strategic course aimed at combating corruption, which provides for the transition of our republic from the routine fight against corruption to a radical change in public consciousness, as well as the rejection by the population of any of its forms of manifestation,” the head of the region emphasized.
D. Malakhov shared new approaches to the activities of the Anti-Corruption Service as part of the implementation of the President’s instructions.
“As the Head of State noted in his Address, “People are tired of empty declarations and endless presentations of a bright future and are waiting for government agencies to clearly fulfill their promises.” In this regard, the Agency has developed a Corruption Risk Map for each region. It reflects a list of topical issues that cannot be resolved precisely because of the opacity of processes, the presence of administrative barriers, and the imperfection of legislation,” Dmitry Malakhov said.
Thus, in the Akmola region, the Map of corruption risks included the areas of agriculture, land relations, roads and infrastructure, as well as ecology. These are the main problems that the local population faces and which are associated with corruption risks.
“In this regard, it is extremely important that local executive bodies, as well as members of the public, pool their resources and capabilities,” D. Malakhov added.
Also, the First Deputy Chairman got acquainted with the construction of an apartment building in the Saryarka microdistrict for the resettlement of residents of an emergency building No. 11 on Vernadsky Street. The aforementioned house has long been recognized as emergency, and its residents are waiting to be able to leave unsafe housing. Officials promise to hand over the new building very soon and note that in the distribution of apartments, priority was given to people with special needs.
