9th ReSPA Annual Conference - Optimization of Public Administration in Western Balkans
Podgorica, Montenegro 15-16 November 2016
The Regional School of Public Administration (ReSPA) has devoted its 9th Annual Conference to opening direct channels of discussion on experiences, methodologies and innovative practices in the process of optimization of public administration in the Western Balkans.
Impact of the world crisis on optimization and professionalization in Public Administration – OECD experience and perspective
As part of the event, Rolf Alter (Director for Public Governance and Territorial Development, OECD) presented a video message on OECD's experience and perspective.
ReSPA has chosen this topic so as to help demystify optimization as one of most important mechanisms for pushing public administration reforms towards creation of more rational, transparent and accountable services for the citizens of this region.
The expected impact of the ReSPA's Annual Conference is initiation of a more permanent experience exchange and concrete follow-up activities related to the systemic changes needed for effective optimization of public administration.
