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.



Corporate governance and business integrity in Kazakhstan

Corrupt corporate activities can be prevented, exposed and effectively addressed with well-functioning corporate governance practices that underpin a framework of responsibility, transparency and accountability. Good corporate governance is therefore an important tool for fighting misconduct from within the firm. This chapter describes the practices of corporate governance and business integrity in the Republic of Kazakhstan’s private sector. This chapter addresses business integrity and anti-corruption frameworks in corporations, the practices of corporate social responsibility in Kazakhstan, and risk management systems in the private sector. In addition, it provides examples of good practices at a company level as well as of external incentives for business integrity, collected during a recent stocktaking exercise carried out by the OECD.
