Preventing Corruption for a Competitive Economy

This report looks at how to curb corruption and build a more competitive economy in the Republic of Kazakhstan by assessing four crucial factors: governance, prevention, detection, and prosecution and recovery. In its analysis, it draws on good international practices as well as OECD instruments and tools in 15 policy areas: regulatory governance, competition policy, public financial management, development co-operation, public sector integrity, public procurement, tax administration and transparency, export credits, lobbying, whistleblower protection, business sector integrity, criminalising bribery, civil society, and media. The report provides recommendations for improving Kazakhstan’s laws and policies as well as effectively implementing them in each of these areas.

Hide / Show Abstract

Many of the world’s ills can be traced, at least in part, to corruption. Indeed, corruption is recognised as one of the main barriers to sustainable economic growth, political and institutional stability and social cohesion. It generates added costs to doing business, deterring investment and stifling an economy’s competitive advantage. It weakens the rule of law and threatens security. It diverts resources and public services from those who need them most, undermining their chances of achieving greater wellbeing and prosperity. It strips ordinary citizens of their voice in democratic processes, cementing or exacerbating social inequalities and ultimately eroding trust in, and the legitimacy of, institutions.
