The SIGMA program (Support for Improvement in Governance and Management), on November 27th and 28th, organizes in Paris the seminar for representatives of countries-users of the Instrument of the Pre-Accession Assistance (IPA) of the European Union.

The purpose of the seminar is to explore in which way the IPA programs can assist the countries-users to strengthen their public administration in the context of the European Integrations.

Seminar will be focused on three key topics:

  • reform of public administration and government
  • public procurements
  • control of public finances.

The goal of this seminar is to establish the permanent network of dialogs of public sector of countries encompassed by the Euro-integrations.

This seminar is a part of the activities of the SIGMA (special program of the  Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development) in promoting the significance of a good coordination in a public administration and it is in a certain way a continuation of the seminar which has been held in October 2007.
