In any state, the priorities in the field of public administration are largely conditioned by the social and cultural characteristics inherent in the population of a particular country. Sociocultural environment is a system of cultural values and generally accepted norms, laws, regulations, scientific data and technologies that the members of the society have at their disposal.
