During the period of coronavirus pandemic, when face-to-face training is limited, online training about "Public Governance and Structural Reforms" organized by JVI was an excellent opportunity to get theoretical and practical knowledge about structural reforms in the public sector. The course covered almost all critical issues of public governance, including privatization, competitiveness, regulatory impact assessment, macroeconomic policy, digitalization and social security. It offered participants a unique opportunity to learn about all the policy instruments necessary to make an effective and transparent decision in the public sector, particularly during the emergency like this pandemic. Knowledge gained in this course will be useful at my work, especially to analyze the regulatory framework and structural reforms and assess their impact on business and society.  Sergo SanikidzeThe Office of the Business OmbudsmanGeorgia
