(RU) Timur Kulibayev: an entrepreneur in the courts must find protection and an equitable solution
"We are now working hard to eradicate this practice. An entrepreneur in courts must find protection and an equitable solution. With all legal structures, Atameken has built constructive interaction: we are actively engaged in a dialogue with the General Prosecutor's Office, with the Agency for Civil Service Affairs and Anti-Corruption. The State of Law begins with honest courts. The absence of legal nihilism is one of the foundations for the development of business in the country. In the near future, independent international financial court of the AIFC will operate, based on the principles of English law. Business has very high hopes on it. For entrepreneurs, it is very important that positive judicial practice is universal, so that the rule of law and transparency of the entire judicial system prevail in the country" - Timur Kulibayev said.
An important step was the signing of the Law on Improving the Regulation of Entrepreneurship, excluding 20 spheres of control out of 114, which duplicated each other without any efficiency and also reduced about 18,000 requirements for the verification of entrepreneurs.
