The Signing Ceremony was attended by the MPM Minister Kim Pan Suk and Chairman of the Steering Committee of the ACSH Alikhan Baimenov. Based on this MOC, the two organizations agreed to enhance cooperation in the area of public personnel administration to strengthen the human resource management in the government among ACSH's member countries around the Greater Central Asia, mainly by sharing best practices in civil service reform (i.e. recruitment, compensation, pension, HRD, performance management) through exchanges of visits and knowledge sharing, hosting of expert meetings and participation in civil service-related activities.
