A chapter in Economic Recovery After COVID-19, 2021, pp 59-86 from Springer
Abstract Public administration is a key area for the economic and social development, with a direct impact on the governance system and on improving the quality of citizens’ lives. COVID-19 pandemic revealed public administration’s need to modernize and reform. The analysis of the Romanian public administration from the human resources perspective revealed that this area is facing with an ageing body of civil servants, with instability caused by the frequent changes in legislation, the need to train civil servants and difficulties in attracting and retaining personnel specialized in areas with deficit (IT, education and health). These problems had impact on public administrations’ efficiency and performance and on the successful implementation of reforms and strategies. Also, the analysis revealed that Romania ranks in the last places in the European rankings regarding all indicators related to digitalization which shows the need for speeding the digitalization process, inclusively in the public utility sector. More than that, the research aimed to investigate the implications of the COVID-19 crisis on the economy of Romania's regions showing that reducing the effects of the COVID-19 crisis and reviving the economy implies concerted measures in the short, medium and long terms that should focus on managing the crisis of the public health system and on the economic, social and public finance crisis.
