As a part of capacity building component of the PERFORM intervention implemented in cooperation with the Public Policy Secretariat (PPS), a study visit was organised May 17-20 in the Netherlands for members of the Serbian and Albanian governments, involved in PERFORM pilot project.
The Serbian delegation consisted of representatives of the Public Policy Secretariat, Ministry of Economy, Ministry of Youth and Sport, Ministry of Culture and Information, members of the Commission of Protection of Competition; while the Albanian delegation had the representatives of the Strategic Planning Unit, Research and Policy Incubation Unit, and Delivery Unit.
It has been an impressive and very well organised programme, which gave us the opportunity to learn from this best case. The Dutch model inspires us to contribute in developing such mechanisms in our countries. The study tour was an excellent opportunity to have an exchange with the colleagues from the Serbian Government, regarding professional experiences as well as creating a personal connection.
