Giorgi Papava, the manager of the "Reformer" program, shared insights on state participation in reforms during the "Business Partner Peak Hour" program. He noted that while the state is notably active in certain reforms, its involvement can be minimal in others.
Papava pointed out that despite concerted efforts, the engagement of the state in some areas of reform is infrequent. He also mentioned that the contribution of donors and international organizations to the "Reformer" initiative is critically low.
The core aim of the "Reformer" project is to scrutinize the progress of key economic reforms, foster dialogue among stakeholders, and assist government entities in enhancing the awareness and impact of their reform efforts.
"The project will initially involve surveys of implementing agencies to determine the current status of various reforms, review main activities, ongoing processes, and future plans. This approach is designed to ensure responsible execution and keep interested parties informed," explained Papava.
In the project's second phase, stakeholders, including the private sector and individuals, will evaluate the potential of reforms to achieve their stated objectives. Additionally, they will assess whether the reforms represent the most effective approach to attaining specific outcomes.
Papava also described a third component, which aims to educate both sides using key performance indicators, such as visitor numbers for tourism-related reforms.
With all components considered, Papava believes that the reform process can be executed effectively.
