Samruk-Kazyna wants to "infect" Kazakh Government with philosophy of transformation

The state bodies of Kazakhstan are interested in applying the experience of JSC "NWF Samruk-Kazyna" on transformation in its activities. This was reported by Managing Director of the Fund for Interaction with the Government Nurlan Rakhmetov, speaking at an expanded meeting under the banner Cultural Code of Samruk-Kazyna. Reinvention, Kazpravda.kz reports.

"In terms of long-term relations, as partners, I would like to note that the state bodies are interested in what is happening in our fund. It is important that this ideology of changes spreads outside the fund. We would like the philosophy of transformation to "infect" everyone, including the government, and government agencies are already coming to us and ask to share our experience," Rakhmetov said.

At the same time, he noted that the exchange had already taken place within the framework of cooperation with the Prosecutor General's Office of the Republic of Kazakhstan and the Ministry of Internal Affairs.

He also noted that some employees of the fund went to work in the Prosecutor General's Office, in order to implement the program of transformation.

Recall, in September 2014 the Board of Directors of Samruk-Kazyna JSC approved the Program of Transformation. Six national companies are involved in the transformation.

The main and key indicator of the transformation process is the added economic value - EVA. A positive EVA characterizes the effective use of capital and indicates an increase in the value of the company.

On Thursday, RK Prime Minister Bakytzhan Sagintayev held a regular meeting of the Board of Directors of the National Welfare Fund "Samruk-Kazyna", Kazpravda.kz reports with reference to the press service of the head of the Government of the Republic of Kazakhstan.

During the meeting, a progress of the Transformation Programe, a comprehensive privatization plan and preparations for the IPO of the Fund's assets were discussed.

The work Plan and the annual budget of the Fund for 2018 were approved, and a report on the work of the Internal Audit Service for 9 months of 2017 was heard.
