Naturally, an internal assessment or audit is necessary. In this respect, the opinions of domestic advisers, business community, and members of civil society are always very important for the country, as without them we cannot move forward.
How something should be implemented or how to combine different views is a valued skill, especially when making an important political decision. But no internal audit can provide an absolutely objective picture of the state of affairs. Therefore, an external assessment conducted by international partners like the International Monetary Fund, the World Bank and other international organizations or individual advisory groups should always be taken into account to make corrections to plans, if there is a plan, and especially during the phase of implementation.
Here is one example. The national program of reforms for 2012 contains plans for significant changes on how health care in Ukraine is provided. The healthcare system is one of the most difficult for any politician to change anywhere in the world.
