Second workshop with Ukrainian civil servants implemented
Anne Bercio, project leader of “Capacity Building for EU Association in Ukraine“ at IEP, implemented successfully the second out of six workshops with Ukrainian civil servants. All workshops aim at preparing the participants, working in leading positions in federal ministries or offices, to implement the EU-AA/DCFTA effectively.
The second workshop took place on 26–27 September in Kyiv and was dedicated to EU reporting and writing. The participants were trained individually in how to properly draft reports to the EU in different policy areas. They also learned how to coordinate this process in their offices and will pass on the acquired knowledge to their colleagues. During the workshop, the participants were supported by Ms Amina Sisic, an independent Bosnian EU adviser, Ms Ivana Davidovic and Mr Vladimir Medak, both working in the Serbian European Integration Office. In order to learn how the reporting is handled in other associated countries, Ms Davidovic and Mr Medak passed on best-practice experience from Serbia acquired in the Serbian association process.
The workshops are kindly supported by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ). The next workshop will be on 10–11 October on EU Legal Harmonisation.
