Improving efficiency and reducing
bureaucracy in the public sector
Government intends making the civil service more efficient
and less bureaucratic, the Parliamentary Secretary within the Finance
ministry responsible for the self employed, Edwin Vassallo, said yesterday.
Vassallo met representatives of the constituted bodies to discuss the
White Paper on the reform of the public service.
"Now is the time for entrepreneurs to suggest change," Vassallo
Now is the time to discuss with the Chamber of Commerce, Federation
of Industry, GRTU and Malta Institute of Management, he insisted, when
announcing that talks would be carried out during several meetings to
be convened over the coming months.
"The White Paper is of particular interest for those in business
because the public service is their largest service provider. It is
for this reason that representative of the business community will be
meeting with government to discuss proposals to make the Civil Service
more efficient, less bureaucratic, and more motivated to assist those
that require its help."
