    Abstract

    [Introduction]. It is a pleasure to be invited here today and exchange views with you at the Fifth European Conference of the European Institute of Public Administration. The functioning of the European Union and indeed the success of Enlargement rely to a large extent on efficient public administration at all levels of government. The Commission therefore encourages initiatives such as this conference today, which aim to bring together public sector decisionmakers and contribute to good and solid working relations between them and the countries they represent. Enlargement will only succeed – in the sense of being a lasting success – if it has the democratic support of Europe’s citizens. Moreover, public administrations in both the Member States and the candidate countries have a key role to play in helping the population adjust to an enlarged European Union, and to ensure a successful transformation process.
