This Strategy deals with modernization, development and financing of public administration´s operations, as well as the key steps that need to be taken in the area of human resources management in public administration. Through modernizing national public administration, Czech Republic makes an effort to improve its competiveness, to increase the efficiency of processes and to achieve greater transparency, as well as to downsize public expenditures.
