The primary target audience of this learning program are officials from:
In the past year we scaled up reaching out to line ministries who aim to strengthen their financial management functions. We kicked-off of a three-year multi-beneficiary capacity development effort covering the EU candidate and potential candidate countries in the Western Balkans and Turkey. The purpose of the project is to strengthen analytical capacities needed for comprehensive assessment of fiscal implications of structural reforms, to promote greater fiscal policy coordination among relevant authorities especially between finance ministries and line ministries, as well as within the umbrella of individual line ministries, and to stimulate exchange of good practices across the region.We design our learning initiatives under this program closely with IMF Fiscal Affairs Department (FAD). We host two IMF FAD advisors and their support staff. Suzanne Flynn, PFM Advisor for South East Europe is involved in many initiatives of this program; IMF’s technical assistance missions in the SEE region strongly inform our program
