Annual Progress Report on the Reimbursable Advisory Services Program in Romania : January 1 - December 31, 2018 (English)

Through Bank Reimbursable Advisory Services (RAS), the government of Romania accesses international experience and global best practice in pursuit of strengthening government capacity in policy and strategy formulation, analysis, diagnosis, sector and project/program planning, design, and implementation. By signing the MoU in January 2016, the government of Romania acknowledged the value of the Bank’s knowledge and advice as an important element of the effective implementation of its priorities, strategies, and projects financed by the European Structural and Investment Funds (ESIF) during the 2014-2020 programing period. As part of the reporting activities agreed with the government under the MoU, the Bank prepares an annual progress report on the RAS program. This is the third progress report on the RAS program paid for by the government during the 2014-2020 EU programming period. The report covers the period from January 01, 2018 to December 31, 2018. The report summarizes and discusses early results of the 2018 RAS program, and looks at the way forward for this program. This progress report is intended for RAS government beneficiaries and managing authorities
