The meeting was chaired by the Minister of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine Oleh Nemchinov.
The participants discussed issues related to the further implementation of public administration reform, in particular, the reform of the civil servants' remuneration system and the classification of positions.
For his part, the First Deputy Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Oleksandr Korniienko stressed the need to hold a specialised meeting on public administration reform in the context of the European Union's Enlargement Package.

These are the issues of competitions, HRMIS and administrative procedures," the First Vice Speaker stressed.
