Study visit to French Institutions: Introduction to the evaluation system of public policies
Under the scope of the EU project “Strengthening the institutional capacity of the House of Representatives in Jordan", Altair Asesores organised a study visit to France from 20 to 23 February 2017.
The aim of the visit was to acquaint the Jordanian Delegation, formed by Members of Parliament and staff from the House of Representatives, to the French evaluation system on the implementation of public policies and legislation. To do so, the Delegation assisted to several very fruitful working sessions and seminars in the French Institutions and bodies: the National Assembly, with a special focus on the Committee for the Evaluation and Monitoring of Public Policies, the Senate, the Court of Auditors and France Stratégie, among others.

Representatives of the Altair Asesores company delivered two LCD TVs and two DVD players to the University Children’s Hospital Tiršova today. “We hope that this donation will contribute to an easier stay of children at the Hospital,” representatives of the company said. In the spirit of the coming holidays, the company decided to support this hospital which provides health care to the youngest, instead of organising a New Year’s cocktail for stakeholders.
