This report presents an overview of country initiatives concerning efficient, effective public services and open and innovative government. It focuses on four core issues:  delivery of public services in times of fiscal consolidation; a more effective and performance-oriented public service; promotion of open and transparent government; and strategies for implementation of a reform agenda.  These issues were discussed at the OECD Public Governance Ministerial Meeting held in Venice, Italy, in November 2010, hosted by the Italian Ministry for Public Administration and Innovation.




The Polish economy has thus far proven to be extremely resilient to the global economic crisis. Government activities such as the state transition pension reform, the reinforcement of Poland’s credibility in international markets, the anti-crisis measures targeted at the labour market or the major privatisation scheme, have consolidated the foundation of the Polish economy. In November 2008 the government put forward the Stability and Development Plan aimed at protecting the Polish economy against the global financial crisis. In addition, the Package of Anti-Crisis Measures was introduced by the government in 2009. The Polish currency was stabilised and its position safeguarded. A programme supporting Polish enterprises has also been developed.
