On the basis of the signed MoC, and with the aim of its efficient implementation and achievement of even better results, an Action Plan was implemented. Also, a Working Group was formed for coordinating the entire process of implementing the planned activities.
At the meeting, it was concluded that the cooperation between the two ministries led to positive effects, and it was agreed that in the coming period, the cooperation will be expanded to new areas within the framework of the Public Administration Reform, reform of local self-government, human resources management and within the professional development of employees in administrative bodies and bodies of Local Self-Government Units.
