The Head of the National Agency of Ukraine on Civil Service Nataliіa Aliushyna met with Regional Director of the Hanns Seidel Foundation in Ukraine, Republic of Moldova and Romania Benjamin Bobbe.
During the meeting, the leaders discussed the progress of joint projects and steps to deepen cooperation. The Foundation has been cooperating with the NAUCS for a long time and provides expert support and assistance in implementing the reform of public administration and civil service, local self-government, and professional training of public servants.
"It is important for us to continue to attract active, motivated young people to the civil service who have fresh ideas and proposals for public policy in various areas.

In 2023-2024, it is planned to develop and conduct programmes on such topics as media education and media literacy, and the rights of EU citizens. As well as on modern tools for the professional development of civil servants. In addition, the plans for 2024-2025 include the revision and preparation of new policy analysis methodologies and the development of a new general professional programme for civil servants.
