We Cooperate Closely With Dutch Ministry of Finance

The Dutch Ministry of Finance is one of the CEF’s most important partners in delivering our program workshops and seminars. Working with the CEF is a key part of their outreach to transition countries. In turn, the partnership has allowed us to expand our course offerings and deepen their quality. Dutch experts frequently serve as guest lecturers in two to three-day missions. These in-kind contributions to the CEF offer a solid platform for an effective experience sharing and peer learning. The workshops allow participants to benefit from Dutch experience and lessons learned, while lecturers gain a perspective on the challenges and progress in reforms across CEF member countries. Angelique van Haasteren, TA Coordinator at Ministry of Finance, the Netherlands on cooperation with the CEF:

«Close cooperation between the Dutch Ministry of Finance and the CEF extends to many areas of interest to the region. A perfect example is the comprehensive program in taxation where we team up with the CEF and the IMF. Workshops on different topics are performed by experts of the Dutch Tax Administration. Their training approach is interactive and hands on, and includes presentations of case studies by participants – among them also colleagues from countries we share constituencies with at the IMF, the World Bank and the EBRD. The Dutch experts highly value cooperation with the CEF staff. Together they create a professional training atmosphere where both participants and experts get inspired.»
