During the Kyiv International Economic Forum (KIEF-2018), State Secretary of the Ministry of Infrastructure Andriy Halushchak and Executive Director of the League Alexey Musatov signed a Public Declaration to Cooperate.
“We are working on creating an engagement Platform, something like “Prozorro” for government decision-making, where all stakeholders from all over Ukraine – business, public and government officials – will be able to work constructively on problem-solving. The idea has been supported by the Ministry of Infrastructure, and, today we have finally agreed to launch a pilot project”, – said Alexeу Musatov.
The project suggests that the Directorates of the Ministry will post Information Problems Requests on the e-Platform. The Platform will organize is targeted at engagement process stakeholder groups, forming working groups of domain experts, businessman and others who are sources of knowledge or information. The result of the work should be a comprehensive analysis of problems, which the Ministry will be able to take into account in making decisions.
“The prospect is that the project will allow to engage the public in an early-stage cooperation. This approach will enable the Ministry to reach an informed and balanced decision, with maximum taking into account the views of civil society. Today it is an experiment, but we hope for his success “, – said Andriy Halushchak.
The launch of the pilot project is planned for the first quarter of 2019. Earlier, the e-Platform concept was introduced to the European Parliament and during the International GR Forum in Brussels.
