This was stated by Sergii Chernov, Chairman of Kharkiv Regional Council during his speech at the Interregional Forum Partnership for Sustainable Community Development: Strengthening Economic Capacity Locally that is taking place in Kharkiv these days.

In this context, he said that as a representative of Ukraine at the Bureau of the Conference of Regional and Local Authorities for the Eastern Partnership (CORLEAP), he would make a presentation on building capacity of local and regional authorities in the Eastern Partnership countries.

“It is impossible to ensure good governance if we ignore work at the local level, while there are a number of initiatives and programs for strengthening administrative capacity and training of officials, a conceptual approach needs to be applied. For this, I suggested founding Eastern Partnership Academy of Public Administration with a head office in one of the Eastern Partnership countries”, Sergii Chernov acknowledged.

Karl-Heinz Lambertz, President of the European Committee of the Regions also came forward with an initiative of founding Eastern Partnership Academy of Public Administration at the meeting of the Ministers of Foreign Affairs on May 13.

Taking this into account, the Chairman of the Regional Council suggested considering Kharkiv region as a pilot site for exchanging experience in the issues of support of the development of rural areas on permanent basis.

“It is important that the interested communities gained such experience not only from experts who are knowledgeable in theory but from those who apply their knowledge, skills and technology in practice. This is a necessary aspect for the dissemination of new knowledge and their practical implementation. I think that Kharkiv region has all conditions for such initiative to be implemented namely here. We have the necessary experience, scientific and organizational resources, as well as the desire to work in this direction.” Sergii Chernov mentioned.
