Representatives of the European Commission and the European Parliament noted the significant progress achieved in reforming the energy sector, the healthcare sector, public procurement sector, and decentralisation process. At the same time, European officials pointed out the issue that requires urgent resolution — combating corruption in general and establishing the Anti-Corruption Court, in particular.
