Kazakhstan Ratifies Rome Convention
The Kazakhstan parliament has recently adopted the Law on Ratification of the Rome Convention for the Protection of Performers, Producers of Phonograms and Broadcasting Organizations.
The law was drafted in line with Kazakhstan’s duties as part of the customs union and single market it formed with Russia and Belarus in 2010. As part of the agreement, Kazakhstan is required to join the Rome Convention. Russia and Belarus are already among the 91 contracting parties.
