Good Governance in the Public Sector

Public Sector Roundtable

Good Governance in the Public Sector

On Wednesday 9 November 2011, FEE organised a high level meeting in Brussels to discuss what good governance means and its implications for strong financial management in the public sector. Good governance has a critical role to play in delivering efficient and effective public services, as well as helping to increase public trust and confidence now and well in to the future. The roundtable aimed at sharing and discussing the views of all relevant stakeholders in the European debate.

Documents of the Roundtable are now available.
