- improve the verification of information about digital assets of officials;
- to restrict people with an outstanding criminal record the ability to manage the State Unitary Enterprise and the State Medical University ;
- organize training for businessmen to minimize the risks of falling under anti-corruption laws in other countries;
- engage in the creation of content on the Internet aimed at “popularizing anti-corruption standards” in society;
