Media breakfast “Decentralization – How to Ensure Irreversibility?”

De​ar colleagues!

The Reanimation Package of Reforms would like to invite you to take part in the media breakfast  “Decentralization  – How to Ensure Irreversibility?”, which will be held on November, 12 at 10:00 am – 12:00 pm at the office of the RPR (6 Olhynska str, off. 21).

Decentralization is one of the few Ukrainian reforms, the results of which are already tangible. Local budgets revenue in the first half of 2015 increased by 39% comparing to the same period of 2014. Subsidized budgets have dropped f​r​om 94% to 76%. In addition, more than 800 villages and towns have already created 159 united territorial communities wh​ich​ elected their representatives to new local authorities on October 25, 2015.

However, agreeing that this reform is crucial, a lot of specific issues are still debated. What is the role of the amendments to the Constitution for further decentralization? Which benefits will decentralization bring to each home? Who are the prefects and will they perform control or executive functions? What are the challenges of this reform and how to overcome them? 

These and other questions will be discussed during the media breakfast. Among the speakers are:

Anatoliy Tkachuk – leading expert of the RPR group on decentralization, Civil Society Institute director;

Victoria Ptashnyk – ​member of the Verkhovna Rada Committee on Economic Policy;

Vyacheslav Negoda – first deputy Minister of the Regional Development, Construction and Housing and Communal Services of Ukraine
