Brussels (BE) - 29/10/13
High level conference on the importance of an efficient, effective and transparent public administration and its effect on Member States` competitiveness.
The quality of public administration is an important driver of Europe’s competitiveness. The Europe 2020 strategy – the EU's growth strategy for this decade - stresses that competitiveness is the result of the interplay of diverse factors, and within that context it emphasises the importance of an efficient, effective and transparent public administration. Modernising public administration is a key issue to restoring competitiveness in a number of Member States. As such, the Commission is highlighting its importance in the Annual Growth Survey and in recommendations addressed by the European Council to specific Member States.
