Monitoring report of European Reform Agenda (ERA) for the period of January-June 2018

Prishtina Institute for Political Studies (PIPS), GAP Institute and Group for Legal and Political Studies on 3 August held a press conference on the topic "Monitoring report of European Reform Agenda (ERA) for the period of January-June 2018".

The findings from the monitoring of the remaining obligations which are foreseen to be finalized in 2018 were presented in this press conference.

Njomza Mjeku, Project Officer at GLPS, stressed that in the field of good governance and rule of law some of the actions that have stagnated and are still being processed are: the adoption of legislation on the suspension of public officials in cases of corruption, the adoption of the law on judges and prosecutors, the adoption of a legal package for public administration reform and a legal package for electoral reform among others.

Nora Jusufi, Researcher at GAP Institute, pointed out that in the field of competitiveness and investment climate some of the objectives in which progress has been made but have not been met entirely are the restructuring of KIESA, the adoption of the Law on Energy Efficiency and the creation of a corresponding fund and the implementation of measures within the framework of the Connectivity Agenda due to non-implementation of the agreements by all signatories.

Visar Xhambazi, Researcher at PIPS, said that in the field of employment and education some of the shortcomings in this area relate to the adoption of labor regulations for the Employment Agency, the allocation of the appropriate budget for the implementation of the Strategic Education Plan, The Curriculum, Standards and Assessment Agency, and the design of core curricula for Vocational Education and Training.

In total, the ERA implementation plan for 2018 includes 29 general measures, which are broken down into 107 concrete actions, of which only 42.99% have been fully implemented for this period, 17.76% partially fulfilled, and 14.02% are met at all, while 25.23% are expected to be processed during July-December 2018.
