Hungary: Towards a Strategic State Approach

image of Hungary: Towards a Strategic State Approach

This report presents the findings and recommendations from analysis conducted by the OECD as part of the OECD-Hungary Strategic Partnership for Public Administration Reform. Through this initiative, the OECD has supported the government of Hungary in putting in place some of the key building blocks of a “strategic state”. The report’s recommendations can be expected to contribute to strengthening the efficiency, effectiveness, transparency and integrity of the public administration and contribute to supporting sustainable and inclusive growth and development in Hungary.



Assessment and recommendations

The Magyary Programme, Hungary’s public administration reform launched in 2011, has established an integrated and ambitious reform strategy which will be continuously updated as reforms progress. It is a project that incorporates a commitment to continuous monitoring of achievements and updates. The commitment to an integrated approach is not always evident in reforms of this nature elsewhere in the OECD, and the dynamic nature of the process is also noteworthy. The programme is not complacent: it starts with a sober assessment of the current state of the public administration, including the need to address the issue of corruption.
