Opening remarks - Regional conference on the functioning of centres of government in the Western Balkans - Ms. Ratka Sekulovic

  1. 1. Branelovica bb, 81410 Danilovgrad, Montenegro, Tel +382 (0) 20 817 20 , www.respaweb.eu Opening Remarks by the ReSPA Director Ms. Ratka Sekulovic at the Regional Conference on Functioning of Centres of Government (CoG) ReSPA, Danilovgrad, 22 June 2017 "It is my pleasure to welcome you all to ReSPA, to the Regional Conference devoted to the CoGs in the Western Balkans. I am thankful for this unique opportunity to have credible partners from the EC, SIGMA and RCC with us. As you already know, for almost seven years of its existence, ReSPA has done a lot in its mission to boost regional cooperation and strengthen public administration reform as one of the three main preconditions for the successful integration of the Western Balkans to the EU. Recognising the role and position of the CoGs in that demanding process, we decided together with our partners, to present SIGMA Study on the state of play regarding CoGs in the region and to initiate discussion on its main findings. This Conference will be also an opportunity to share good practices and country initiatives, to discuss key challenges but also to learn from the European Commission’s focus on this important aspect of public administration. Also, this is an opportunity to hear about the results of the work of the OECD around the World, and Latvian experience as well. This occasion of networking of the Western Balkans’ representatives also provides an opportunity to discuss the work initiated by ReSPA and RCC towards effective and efficient public consultation practices in policy and legislation development. At the end of the event, we should clearly see how ReSPA can further support CoGs in the region".
