It was positively the implementation of the Regulation on the Minimum Standards for the Public Consultation Process, and the functioning of the Online Platform for the Public Consultation were positively assessed. Training's for government officials as well as for civil society are continuing.

There was a request for better monitoring of the implementation of the regulation, as there are still institutions that do not publish public consultation reports.

The regulation on the criteria, standards and procedures of public funding of NGOs is still in the phase of public consultations. Council members from civil society requested that a series of consultations in municipalities to be held for this regulation

Creating a Public Contracting System for Civil Society Organizations, and defining the “volunteering”, still remain a challenge. These two objectives were asked to have a greater focus during 2017.
