Close links to quebec public expertise

Thanks to decades of collaboration with experts who have worked to reform and modernize Quebec’s public administration, ENAP can count on their efforts in carrying out its international projects.

ENAP assists government authorities from different countries in several strategic areas. 


“In the context of its modernization, Gabon must count on a strong, effective and professional administration. That’s why my country’s officials chose ENAP to assist us. They made this choice on the basis of ENAP’s practical expertise in the field of public administration. Collaboration with ENAP has permitted us to lay the groundwork for the decompartmentalization of various interventions and better government coordination. As a result, we have implemented a government work program that eliminates barriers and provides services better corresponding to the wishes of Gabon’s population. Our inspiration stems from the example of the role and duties of Quebec deputy ministers and interdepartmental committees. This has also led us to consider another way of working with our senior public servants.

At ENAP, we’re in contact with very professional individuals having extensive experience and proven expertise. We have worked with the University since 2009 and we intend to continue since many things remain to be done to build a Gabonese model taking into account our distinctive characteristics.”
