Today, 24 January 2017, the Memorandums of Cooperation were ceremonially signed by representatives of 14 amalgamated communities and SKL International with respect to the establishment of administrative service centres in those communities.
During the event, Deputy Minister of Regional Development, Construction and Housing and Communal Services of Ukraine Roman Chuprynenko thanked representatives of the international and donor community for the support for important democratic transformations in the country. "One of the key objectives of the decentralisation comprises the establishment of a comfortable and secure environment for the life of people in the country. And today, a new page of our cooperation is being opened in that direction. I am sure that the smooth operation of the administrative service centres in those amalgamated communities will become an example for others and will show the opportunities of the reform implementation in the interests of an individual and the community", Roman Chuprynenko said.
In SKL International, they noted that, within the framework of the Memorandum, it is provided for conducting building renovations and equipping the administrative service centres, as well as training relevant specialists and carrying out awareness campaigns on the activities of such centres in those 14 communities. The total amount of funding is EUR 8 million.
During the event, the sponsors informed that, in the nearest future, there would be held a competitive selection of 10 more amalgamated communities for providing assistance thereto for the development of administrative service centres in those communities.
