The VET reform assessment was conducted on October 4, 2017. According to the Government Survey, 80% of 2013-2017 Action Plan, and 50% of the entire reform, which is scheduled to last until 2020, has been implemented. The survey also showed how the reform, including launch of the dual education system, which took off in 2013 revamped the whole structure of vocational education system. However, it will be difficult to achieve the desired results without active involvement of the private sector.

The reform was evaluated by the Stakeholder Group with a score of 5.76 out of 10.

On September 27, 2017, the first assessment of Pension Reform was conducted, within “ReforMeter”. Based on the Government Survey, 38.8% of the reform is already implemented. At this stage, the reform concept is elaborated and approved by the Government. In October, the draft law will be publicly available. The pension fund functions and obligations are formulated. The regulatory body is defined. Pension system operating rules are designed.

The reform was also evaluated by the reform stakeholders. They underlined that the reform concept was changed many times, and the last version is not still available. Hence, they were not aware of the final concept of the private pension savings (II Pillar) system, as well the indexation mechanisms of social pensions. According to the Ministry of Economy, the draft law on private pension savings will be published the first week of October.
