The Government is open in its activities and implements human-oriented reforms. The State Secretary of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine Volodymyr Bondarenko emphasized this, opening the V All-Ukrainian School of the Future MP, with the support of the Ukrainian Worker Association Students League. The event took place within the Open Government Week framework.
"Such schools (when the youth directly communicates with government officials) allow us to destroy decades-long barriers of closeness when one could join the civil service only by invitation. Today everything is different. We are open, we give you the opportunity to get involved in internship work. And we are interested in a dialogue with you about new ideas of what needs to be changed. Because you are like the litmus test of the future of Ukraine. Ukraine Now is all of you", said Volodymyr Bondarenko, addressing the youth.
The official emphasized that the Government is implementing systemic changes in various spheres and reminded of the introduction of the reform of the civil service, which is intended to change the spirit of the official, to involve young people into the work of public authorities as generators of new ideas and projects in certain directions and to get rid of such phenomenon as corruption.
It is for this purpose that many projects have been implemented in recent years, which, on the one hand, minimize or completely exclude the possibility of corruption, on the other hand, appear convenient for citizens, and it is a whole series of electronic services. "We want changes to be qualitative and human-centered, so we pursue the reforms policy, launch electronic services", said the State Secretary of the Cabinet of Ministers.
He expressed satisfaction with the fact that the youth "are becoming more active and transforming from observers of the participant of changes."
Volodymyr Bondarenko once again called on the youth to join the Secretariat of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine for the internship. He recalled that about 500 young specialists for reforms had already participated in competitions and began their work in state authorities.
On March 23, 2017, Volodymyr Bondarenko signed an order "On Approval of the Procedure for the training in the Secretariat of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine of young citizens not holding civil service positions".
