We were delighted to continue our long and successful collaboration with North Macedonia recently and to welcome the Minister for Labour and Social Policy, the Deputy Minister for Information Society and Administration and the State Secretary for European Affairs and other senior officials, including from the Ministry of Education. The group participated in a special study programme we designed for them focussing on Strategic Accountability and Performance Management. We invited a range of expert speakers to brief the group and arranged a excellent visits to counterparts in the Department for Work and Pensions, the Office of the Civil Service Commission and the All Party Parliamentary Group on North Macedonia. We were also honoured that North Macedonia’s Ambassador to London joined us for two key visits. Run in collaboration with the Center for Change Management, North Macedonia, the programme was part of an ongoing public sector improvement project funded by the UK Government.
