Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych has said that efficient governance depends on the involvement of civil society in this process.
Yanukovych said this in an interview with reporters in New York on Thursday, according to the president's press service.
"We went down this road. The efficiency of public administration also depends on the degree of involvement of the civil society into this process," the president said.
The president recalled that Ukraine supported the U.S.-Brazil initiative Open Government Partnership.
Yanukovych said that the initiative involves the development of civil society, engaging citizens in the state administration.
Besides, the Ukrainian president said the authorities needed to timely inform the public of its intentions and plans, and then report about their implementation.
