In the course of the meeting, the draft Action Plan for Cooperation with the OECD was considered, which provides for the implementation of the Organization's recommendations on the development of innovations, small and medium businesses, improvement of the investment policy, and increasing of the regional competitiveness. Also, the implementation of joint projects with IFIs on the basis of public-private partnership was discussed.
Recall, since 2015, Kazakhstan and the OECD have entered into a phase of active interaction within the framework of the signed Country Program of Cooperation. The Country Program comprises Kazakhstan's accession to 29 OECD Legal Instruments. Kazakhstan has joined 17 legal instruments as of today and is expected to join the remaining 12 this year.
The OECD Recommendations made upon reviews have been included in the National Roadmap for the Implementation of OECD Recommendations.
