To launch the collaboration, the ambassador met with public administration representatives in late November, to discuss client centres in particular, as reported by TASR.

Monter was especially interested in the so-called ESO (Effective, Reliable and Open Public Administration) reform. More than 50 client centres have been opened since 2014, out of a planned 79. Apart from district capitals, they can be found in other places as far as 50 kilometres away from the district capitals.

The most recent one was opened in Žilina.

The Cuban ambassador was also interested in the transformation of the regions’ arrangement and their transition to autonomy. Currently, the reforms are being adopted in two provinces in Cuba, TASR reported.
