Details: As the PM said, the government is working to create a strong Government Centre where auxiliary and administrative functions will be concentrated.

Shmyhal explained that the ministries should have "a small number of very good specialists who will formulate state policy", while the Government Centre will provide legal support in terms of human resources, accounting and financial sector. "The Government Centre should also be able to quickly prepare documents for a particular ministry," he added.

Minister of the Cabinet Oleh Nemchinov has suggested that the Government Centre be launched by 2025.
