Eastern Partnership Panel on Public administration reform


Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs for Security and Multilateral Affairs Martin Povejšil together with Special Representative for Eastern Partnership Jana Lolic-Šindelková opened the 14th edition of the Eastern Partnership Panel on Public administration reform.

The Czech Republic is getting ready to celebrate 10 years anniversary of the Eastern Partnership, which was born in Prague in 2009. In this context, the Panel flagged a long term expert assistance of the Czech Republic to the Eastern Partners in the area of decentralisation, local and regional governance.

The Panel dealt with issues of key importance not only for the Eastern Partners but for the Czech Republic as well, i.e. Better services to citizens and business through simplification of administrative procedures.

Apart from the representatives of Eastern Partners or some EU Member states like Austria, Slovakia, Estonia, United Kingdom, Germany, Poland or Romania, the OECD-SIGMA experts contributed with their detailed legal expertise as well.

The service delivery, the right to good administration or rationality of organisation and digitalisation were among the main issues debated. In addition, the second day was dedicated to the concept of Smart City. The city of Hradec Králové organised an expert Panel composed of the Mayor, representative of the Ministry of Regional Development and experts from the Centre of Investment, Development and Innovation (CIRI).
