OECD Webinar


Rationale for public accountability and goal setting

On June 15, a representative of the Economic Research Institute JSC took part in the OECD webinar dedicated to the review of corporate governance of enterprises with state participation in Kazakhstan.

To promote an ambitious program to reform state-owned enterprises in Kazakhstan, the government of Kazakhstan is adopting the OECD experience, in accordance with the OECD Guidelines on Corporate Governance of State-Owned Enterprises through a joint project to review the corporate governance of state-owned enterprises.

This project aims to help Kazakhstan implement Strategy 2050, which calls for a change in the role of the state and a second wave of large-scale privatization.


The work is between the OECD and the Private Asset Management Policy Department of the Ministry of Economy of Kazakhstan with the support of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Kazakhstan is currently a member of the OECD Working Party on State Property and Privatization Practices, and the project is being implemented within the framework of the Working Party's Global Relations Strategy, aligned with the OECD Global Relations Strategy.

More than 200 experts from various Kazakhstani state enterprises participated in the webinar.


On the OECD side, speakers included Talisa Zur Hausen, Policy Analyst, and Hans Christiansen, Deputy Division Chief and Senior Policy Analyst, as well as representatives from Latvia, Ireland, and Korea.


Participants from the side of Kazakhstan: Aliya Murzagalieva, Director of Asset Management Department of Baiterek National Management Holding, Zhadyra Temirbekova, Head of State Asset Management Policy Department of the Ministry of National Economy of Kazakhstan and Timur Odilov, member of the Expert Council of the Supreme Council of Reforms of Kazakhstan.
