RPR Forum. Commitment, trust, inclusivity: vision of reforms for tomorrow. Civil society proposals

On May 22, 2019, at the initiative of the coalition of NGOs, the Reanimation Package of Reforms, Kyiv will host the Forum “Commitment, trust, inclusivity: vision of reforms for tomorrow. Civil society proposals”.

The Forum is held in preparation for the Third Ukraine Reform Conference, which will take place in Toronto, Canada on July 2-4, 2019, and will bring together key reform stakeholders: representatives of the authorities, businesses, the public and international partners of Ukraine.

Change of political power in Ukraine creates new challenges and opportunities for reforms in Ukraine. How do we prevent reforms rollback and continue qualitative changes? Are the government, businesses and the public ready for a common agenda? Representatives of civil society, government, businesses and international partners will discuss these and other issues during a two-panel discussion. They will also set common priorities for the continuation of reforms in Ukraine, regardless of political changes in the election period.

On May 22, final discussion of the Toronto Principles Vision Document (Key Reform Reforms in Ukraine) and 12 sectoral briefs on different spheres of state policy prepared by civil society experts will be held. These documents will be presented at the Third Ukrainian Reform Conference.

Representatives of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine, the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine, the team of the newly elected President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyi, NGOs and relevant experts, representatives of regional coalitions, and international partners of Ukraine were invited to participate in the Forum.
