Moving ahead with the Regional Investment Reform Agenda in the Western Balkans
Regional Cooperation Council (RCC) with the technical support from World Bank Group continues with the work on the Regional Investment Reform Agenda (RIRA) and implementation of Individual Reform Action Plans (IRAPs), as important elements of the Regional Economic Area Action Plan (MAP REA).
To that end, there is a series of national consultations scheduled, aimed at taking stock of IRAP reform implementation in Western Balkan economies so far, and planning of the next steps in implementing the remaining outstanding reforms over the next period. The consultations will take place in following order:
- 8-9 October in Skopje
- 10-11 October in Pristina
- 14-15 October in Tirana
- 16-17 October in Sarajevo
- 21-22 October in Podgorica
- Dates TBC in Belgrade
These meetings are to produce a clear set of reform priorities and implementation timelines over the next year and a half, for each of the policy areas covered by the IRAP, ensuring that WB's individual economy level policy priorities are addressed properly through the implementation of the IRAP.
