According to a SNSPA release sent to AGERPRES on Saturday, the discussions were aimed at the role of universities in training specialists in administration and central structures of governments. Moreover, the talks also underscored the importance of a greater involvement of universities and European and international institutions in drafting and implementing some realistic and sustainable public policies, the quoted source reads. The meeting was also attended by Romania's representative to the International Monetary Fund Professor Liviu Voinea, PhD, the senior advisor to the IMF Executive Director.
