Mr. Baimenov delivered a speech at the Ministerial Roundtable on “Shaping Future Governments”, which was held on the second day of the Summit.

Thus, it is crucial to remain vigilant in executing digital transformation and to balance decision-making in the interests of public safety, on the one hand, and citizens’ rights and freedoms, on the other. For this, there is a need to improve both national and international legislation.” 

Mr. Baimenov mentioned that “the governments of the region pay great attention to HRM in civil service,” and “priorities that could increase the effect of the efforts taken are following unconditional protection of the principles of meritocracy, adequate talent management, effective leadership and agile management approaches”. Moreover, he outlined the importance of “instilling a corporate culture that built on mutual respect for dignity, employees’ rights and freedoms, labour and efforts, and, finally, respect for time – a non-renewable resource, the value of which is increasing”.
