Berlin hosted a significant event for the legal sphere of Central Asia – the conference of the Association of Administrative Law. 

Vice-President of our Association for Central Asia, Head of the Court Administration Nail Akhmetzakirov and Chairman of the Judicial Board of Administrative Cases of the Supreme Court of the Republic of Kazakhstan Aslan Tukiyev took part from Kazakhstan. 

Mr. Akhmetzakirov and Mr. Tukiyev shared the successes of administrative justice, which has been operating in Kazakhstan since July 2021. Kazakhstani courts support citizens and entrepreneurs in disputes with government agencies in more than 60 percent of cases. 

There is an increase in confidence in the national judicial system, which makes the country more attractive for investment.     

A significant role in the formation of the administrative courts of Kazakhstan was played by the participation of judges from Germany, Azerbaijan, Latvia, Estonia and other countries in the retraining program for more than 350 Kazakhstani judges.    

This program is organized with the support of the German Development Cooperation (GIZ).        

As part of the conference, Nail Akhmetzakirov signed an agreement to continue the training of Kazakhstani judges at the Institute of Oriental Law in Wismar.   

This will be a new step in the development of the judicial system of Kazakhstan and its integration into the international legal community.
