Azerbaijan and Lithuania continue the EU Twinning Project "Supporting the Reform of the Civil Service in Azerbaijan". At the end of August specialists from Lithuania organized a workshop aimed to the selection of civil servants.

During the seminar, experts from the Civil Service Department of Republic of Lithuania presented the selection systems of EU member countries - Lithuania, Belgium and Ireland to representatives of the central authorities of Azerbaijan. Experts from Lithuania made recommendations on the improvement of the civil service selection system of Azerbaijan. The participants of the workshop discussed the selection challenges, the best methods, the assesment of competences by selecting certain positions.

The twinning project in Azerbaijan began in the end of 2016. Its implementation is coordinated by the Government Chancellery and the permanent project adviser to Azerbaijan is delegated by the Civil Service Department. The third project partner is the European Social Fund Agency. The goal of the two-year Twinning project is to assist Azerbaijan in reforming its civil service.
