Participants came to the conclusion that in recent years the situation considerably improved, but there is still a major demand for further national reforms. Furthermore although certain achievements in reforms were achieved, the reform process itself was not dynamic enough. Major problems in the financing sector, as well as important issues of corruption and bureaucracy were also mentioned.
