She was invited to speak at the Conference on relief and reconstruction of Ukraine and its European perspective, organised by the European Economic and Social Committee in Krakow on 19 July 2022.

The European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) is an EU advisory body comprising representatives of workers’ and employers’ organisations and other interest groups. It issues opinions on EU issues to the European Commission, the Council of the EU and the European Parliament, thus acting as a bridge between the EU’s decision-making institutions and EU citizens.

The event will be webstreamed on the event page:

Professional Government Association continues a series of online events related to the post-war recovery of Ukraine. This time we offer you to join the online conference "Public Administration: Postwar Reboot".

We plan to discuss the following questions:

  1. What are the reasons for the low level of trust in public institutions?
  2. What tools can and should be used to remedy the situation? What steps should we all take?
  3. How can Professional Government Association and other organizations of its kind create value along this process?
  4. After the Revolution of Dignity in 2014, many Ukrainians returned from abroad and decided to work for the state, but most of them quickly left. What went wrong then?
  5. When the war with russia is over, will the state need professionals with Western education in power? What can they give and what else do they need to learn?
  6. What are the first practical steps the state should take to attract Western-educated professionals to public administration?
  7. What should be the long-term strategy of the state to attract talents with Western education, who stay there for a long time, give their energy, and recommend the state as an employer to their friends?
  8. What is the current status of the implementation of HRMIS (system of human resources management) in public service institutions?
  9. Has it been possible to build an effective and sustainable organizational structure to deploy in different public administration bodies? What obstacles do its supporters and implementers have to deal with?
  10. What is the role of digital technologies in the reform of the state apparatus: to serve as a tool or to encourage significant changes in processes?

We will be discussing these questions on 24 June 2022 (14:00-17:30, Kyiv time) with the representatives of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine, Public Administration bodies, NGOs, and businesses.

European Commission published its vision of Ukraine's reconstruction efforts

On 18 May 2022, the European Commission issued a communication as regards its plans of Ukraine’s relief and reconstruction. The document recognises that international support for Ukraine, especially by the EU, must concern both the support during the war and efforts to rebuild the country after the war. In this vein, the European Commission will propose new macro-financial assistance in 2022 to cover EUR 9 bln out of the EUR 14.3 bln financing gap (according to IMF estimates). Yet, the reconstruction of Ukraine would require much more significant resources. The European Commission envisages that the strategic reconstruction plan will be developed by the recently organised National Council for Reconstruction while its implementation will be geared by the RebuildUkraine reconstruction platform to be created with the participation of Ukraine, EU and other international donors. This platform would in particular ensure sound management of the funds. Importantly, Ukraine’s reconstruction will be integrated with the EU integration process and will take into account the requirements of EU’s green and digital agendas.
