Comprehensive reforms towards modern, professional and non-partisan public administration in the Western Balkans are one of the key factors for the successful completion of the negotiations towards full membership in the European Union. In this respect, the Programme Committee is devoted to representing a useful tool in strengthening the WB administrative capacities as required by the European Integration process.
Devoted to build a platform which will allow Western Balkan governments to exchange the state of play effectively, target goals and priorities, examples of successful implementation and critical challenges, Programme Committee assists ReSPA members to exchange information related to Public Administration Reform (PAR), Public Finance Management (PFM) and European Integration (EUI) in their countries respectively.
