As a part of the Programme for Strengthening of Public Institutions and organised by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) and the Public Administration Reform Coordinator's Office, the inter-institutional group had its first meeting in Sarajevo today. The group members are public relations representatives from all nine institutions beneficiaries of the Programme.

This was an opportunity to exchange ideas, experiences, and good practices between the partner institutions of the Programme, and to plan future joint activities. This forum will also contribute to the achievement of individual objectives from the Revised Action Plan 1 of the Public Administration Reform Strategy in the area of institutional communication among individual institutions.
