LATVIA – Cabinet of Ministers
The Cabinet decision of 15 November provides, that from spring 2023, the State Chancellery, in addition to its duties, will take over a number of functions of the Interdepartmental Coordination Centre. This will strengthen the centre of power. On the other hand, the Interdepartmental Coordination Centre will be abolished as a separate institution.
Today, both institutions report directly to the Prime Minister and both do important work to enable the government and the Prime Minister to work successfully.
The order, approved by the Cabinet of Ministers, stipulates that the liquidation of the Inter-ministerial Coordination Centre with the absorption of its functions by the State Chancellery should be completed by 1 March 2023.
The liquidation commission of the Interdepartmental Coordination Centre will ensure the transfer of financial assets, tangible and intangible assets, as well as archives and documents to the State Chancellery.
In order for the State Chancellery to assume the functions of the Inter-ministerial Coordination Centre, the Cabinet of Ministers also approved the Amendments to the Cabinet of Ministers Act and the Amendments to the Development Planning Act.
