The requirements will be high. You must be at the forefront of digital transformation and become an example for other government bodies,» Sooronbai Jeenbekov stressed.
«Courts are the last instance where citizens seek justice. You have a special mission — creation of conditions for living in a fair society. Without establishment of justice in the courts, it is impossible to implement reforms in the economic, social spheres, in the system of public administration. Therefore, your activity directly influences the development of the country,» the President said.
