National and international experts discuss good practices in public administrations
The International and Ibero-American Foundation of Administration and Public Policy, FIIAPP, and the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development, OECD, have organised the “Seminar for International Good Practices for Public Administration Reforms in OECD countries” in Madrid.
The event will be inaugurated by the Vice President of the Spanish Government, who announced that 20 of the over 200 reforms anticipated in our country have already been initiated. Soraya Sáenz de Santamaría emphasized that the Spanish Government has a “clear conscience, will and competence” and that “the reform initiative continues to gain momentum.”
OECD Secretary-General Angel Gurría congratulated the Spanish Government on the reforms already in place and recognised that “Spain has made an admirable effort, although we have to continue improving confidence in the markets and in Spaniards themselves.” The OECD Secretary-General concluded: “We are here to work with you, in order to ensure that our efforts are successful and to provide positive results.”
Throughout the entire day, national and international experts will debate and reflect on public administration reforms implemented in OECD countries. Representatives of Spain, Canada, Ireland, France, the Czech Republic, Germany and the United Kingdom will participate in the seminar.
All of these reflections will be included in the report produced by the OECD regarding Spanish public administration reforms. The report should be finished by December andits main objective is to evaluate and support the public administration reforms led by the Spanish Government, with new recommendations.
The report will be financed by the International Ibero-American Foundation of Administration and Public Policy (FIIAPP).
