On 29 November, the Ministry of Public Administration of Montenegro organised a round table with the diplomatic corps and international partners to discuss public administration reform achievements and challenges on the occasion of the third anniversary of the establishment of the Ministry. SIGMA representatives Gregor Virant and Timo Ligi attended the meeting.

The Minister presented the work and achievements of the Ministry over the three years of its existence. The Head of SIGMA delivered a keynote speech, emphasising the good progress made with PAR in Montenegro, particularly in the areas of reorganisation of public administration at the central level, monitoring of implementation of government strategies, civil service, key state registers and their interoperability.

According to SIGMA measurements, public satisfaction with administrative services improved significantly from 2017 to 2019.

The main opportunity for the way forward is to harness the level of development of key state registers and the interoperability framework to improve the quality of services and user satisfaction further.

In a separate meeting with Minister Pribilović and her team, the draft amendments to the Law on Access to Public Information were discussed, which aim at improving the openness and transparency of the public sector.
