President Nursultan Nazarbayev has held a session on the protection of the rights of private citizens and entrepreneurs.
The president stressed the importance of the recently created website - "President's Business Protection," which was opened on the official government site – www.akorda.kz, as per an instruction from the president.
Over 800 messages have been posted from entrepreneurs over the last five months. 247 were complaints alleging violations of their rights on the part of regulatory enforcement agencies.
"I have always paid and continue to pay special attention to the support and development of small and medium-sized business, and the elimination of administrative barriers. As per my instruction, all petitions were taken under the control of the presidential administration and will be considered by corresponding state bodies. We are engaged in a big effort to support private entrepreneurship," the president said.
The president noted the site is one of the most important mechanisms for the protection of the rights of entrepreneurs and stressed the need to analyze the work that has been done, according to Kazinform.
