Experience of local self-government reform discussed at Polish-Ukrainian forum held in Kharkiv

Ukrinform reports that the Polish experience of the reform of local self-government and decentralisation became the main topic of the 2nd Polish-Ukrainian Forum “Hromada. Efficient development. Investments”, held in Kharkiv.

“The process of decentralisation and local self-government reform is being actively pursued in the Kharkiv Oblast, and now there are 13 capable amalgamated hromadas with population ranging from 6.5 to 26 thousand people. Today, our common task is to ensure the development of their territories, to find points of growth, provide power tools and effective management ...
