The fourth meeting of the National Working Group for Public Administration Reform in Serbia was held in Belgrade on 19 November 2018.
The conference “Citizens First: Civil Society Demands for Better Administration in the Western Balkans” brought together more than 60 speakers and over 130 participants from the Western Balkan region and the EU.
After Montenegro published the conclusions of the Public Administration (PAR) Special Group (SG) meeting in October 2017, becoming the first Western Balkan (WB) country to do so, Serbia decides to follow just a year later.
