Ashgabat discusses administrative law issues

The X International Scientific and Practical Conference on Administrative Law, organized by the German Society for International Cooperation ("GIZ"), began its work in Ashgabat.

The two-day forum, the main purpose of which is the exchange of experience in the field of administrative justice, brought together experienced legal experts from Germany, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Poland and Italy.

“This anniversary conference is not accidentally held in Ashgabat. It was here that the Law "On Administrative Procedures" was adopted, and the Administrative Procedure Code is being developed. These are very important bills for the economic development of the country and increase investment attractiveness,” told ORIENT Jörg Pudelka, head of the GIZ representative office in Turkmenistan, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, judge of the Administrative Court of Berlin.

“The Law on Administrative Procedures in Turkmenistan is one of the best in the post-Soviet space,” Mr. Pudelka said. - For two years, Turkmen specialists together with foreign colleagues worked on this bill, taking into account all international experience.

Laws on administrative justice and procedures regulate all state activities when a citizen wants to receive something from the state and vice versa. For example, an investor needs permission to build an object. When the whole process is carried out within the framework of one transparent procedure, it is good both for the investor and the state.

“Legal stability is an important factor for investment,” said the Ambassador of the Federal Republic of Germany to Turkmenistan, Nighthart Höfer-Wissing..

The administrative law system was first invented by a German jurist in the 20th century. Based on his teachings, legislation was developed not only in Germany and other European countries, but also a large number of Asian states.

During the conference, delegates will also learn more about the best practices of other countries in this area.

Commentary to the Civil Code of Turkmenistan will be presented on the final day of the conference.
