Annual Progress Report on the Reimbursable Advisory Services Program in Romania : January 1 - December 31, 2015 (English)

Since 2010, the government of Romania and the World Bank have been strengthening their partnership to make Romania’s economic growth path more inclusive and sustainable. Key to this has been the continued and sustained effort to modernize Romania’s public administration, including through support for implementing EU structural and cohesion funds.This is the third annual progress report which takes stock of the preparation and implementation of advisory services activities in 2015 (January 1 - December 31, 2015). As part of the reporting activities agreed with the government under the memorandum of understanding (MoU) signed in 2012, every year the Bank prepares a progress report on the reimbursable advisory services (RAS) program. Since this is the last progress report to cover advisory services provided to the government under the MoU signed in 2012 and paid under the 2007-2013 EU programming period, the report provides also an overview of all activities implemented and completed until the end of December 2015. This progress report is intended for concerned government beneficiaries and managing authorities. The report includes an overview of the RAS program and its results and briefly touches upon some implementation challenges and lessons learned. The primary focus is on the outputs delivered, but there is also some discussion of outcomes based on the preliminary findings of an ongoing portfolio-level evaluation.
