“Think fast …act faster” will present and discuss some of the most successful innovative approaches from the Western Balkans public administrations among those who participated in the Western Balkans Public Administration Awards contest, a joint initiative by OECD/SIGMA and ReSPA.
Electronic services for citizens (e-Health), e-Government response – Improving service delivery during the pandemic, deployment of Infection Control and Tracking Mechanisms, e-Inspector Contact Center and e-Greenmarket, e-Governmental platforms, online communication platforms and other innovative approaches proved the Western Balkans governments reacted promptly to the COVID-19 crisis, and they also confirmed that the Western Balkans public administrations were ready for a giant step ahead in digitalisation and innovation.
