15:41, Thursday, October 13, 2016

On October 13, 2016, Thursday, at 13:00 o'clock, in the conference hall of the Secretariat for European Affairs was held a ceremony to mark the completion of the twinning project: Further strengthening of the organisational and institutional capacities for the process of European integration."      

At the event official addresses had: Mr. Arbër Ademi, Deputy Prime Minister for European Affairs, Mr. Jaromir Levicek, Head of Economic Affairs, Institution Building and Cross-Border Cooperation - EU Delegation in Skopje, Mr. Marco Aquaticci, Deputy Head of Mission of the Federal Republic of Germany, Ms. Danijela Barisic, Ambassador of the Republic of Croatia, H.E. Jacek Multanowski, Ambassador of the Republic of Poland, Mr. Wolf-Dieter Plessing, project leader, Federal Ministry of Economic Affairs and Energy, Mr. Jovan Andonovski, project leader, State Advisor, Secretariat for European Affairs and Mr. Wojciech Porchik, Resident twinning advisor.   


The project is funded by the European Union with a budget of € 1.7 million and lasts 22 months from 11 January 2015. 31 October 2016.   Implementer of the project is a consortium made up of three countries: Germany, Poland and Croatia.   The key beneficiary of the Twinning project is the Secretariat for European Affairs (SEA), the Working Committee for European Affairs, as well as the members of all working groups for NPAA. Other institutions that will be supported by this project (secondary users) are: the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Legislative Secretariat and the General Secretariat.       


The project aims to support the process of integration into the EU by strengthening the capacities of the SEA in order to provide more effective inter-ministerial coordination in the accession process.      The aim of the project is through the exchange of experiences with EU member-states (twinning partners) to strengthen the capacity in terms of compliance with the EU acquis, better management of the translation process, coordination and monitoring of EU funds and improved inter-ministerial communication between the key institutions in the accession process.   


Also this twinning project gave an overview of all work in the past ten years, determining the level of preparedness of the country for all chapters of the acquis (EU legislation), and the establishment of areas where additional efforts are required, i.e. preparation of action plans.    At the end of the project, this exercise will involve over 800 civil servants, members of the NPAA working groups.      


In terms of capacity building this project implemented: trainings for more than 500 participants, organised study visits to four groups of 15 people, as well as realising week-long internships abroad for 20 participants and donated 40 hard drives for the working groups of the NPAA.
