Annual Progress Report on the Reimbursable Advisory Services Program in Romania : January 1 - December 31, 2020 (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 Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) in January 2016, the government of Romania acknowledged the value of the Bank’s knowledge and advice in the effective implementation of its priorities, strategies, and projects financed by the European Structural and Investment Funds (ESIF) during the 2014-2020 programing period, totaling forty-three billion euros. 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 fifth progress report on the RAS program financed by the government during the 2014-2020 EU programming period. The report covers the period January 01, 2020 to December 31, 2020 and outlines and summarizes early results of the 2020 RAS program, also looking at the lessons learned and the way forward. This progress report is intended mainly for RAS government beneficiaries and managing authorities.
