Kazakhstan has unique civil service model - Alikhan Baimenov

ASTANA. KAZINFORM - Kazakhstan has its own unique model of civil service, says Chairman of the Steering Committee of the Regional Hub of Civil Service in Astana Alikhan Baimenov.

"Over the years of independence Kazakhstan has traveled a long way of socioeconomic, political and administrative reforms. And civil service improvement was an indispensable part of that process," Alikhan Baimenov said at the seminar themed Kazakhstan's civil service model: experience and prospects at the Academy of Public Administration in Astana. In his words, Kazakhstan started with creating a working group for in-depth study of the world's best practice in mid 1990s and since then constantly improved national legislation on civil service. "Having analyzed problems and achievements, Head of State Nursultan Nazarbayev approved the concept of the new model [of civil service] in 2011. Our model takes into account the positive sides of other countries' models, but doesn't copy them. It is a unique Kazakhstani model of civil service," he added.
