Ammon News - A Cabinet session, chaired by Prime Minister, Bisher Khasawneh on Wednesday, decided to form a committee to modernise the public sector.

The committee will be chaired by the Prime Minister and number of ministers, specialized officials, experts who have experience and expertise in public administration, and private sector figures, as members.

During the session, held via teleconference, the Prime Minister said that modernising the public sector has become a necessity as a major lever for economic reform and reforms related to modernising the political system. He indicated that the committee will work within a realistic time frame set at six months, and at the end of its work, it will present a comprehensive roadmap and an executive program to modernise the public administration and streamline and develop procedures.

Khasawneh pointed out to the importance of the committee working within a partnership between the public and private sectors and experts, to reach the required outputs, within three main themes: the legislative theme, the institutional theme and the service improvement theme.

The legislative track, Khasawneh explained, will include reviewing legislation to keep abreast with international best practices, enhancing efficiency and institutional values for the purpose of improving public administration, developing a public employee’s culture with regard to providing services to citizens and the need to improve their quality, and dealing with the private sector as a partner.

With regard to the institutional theme, the premier added that it includes examining the possibility of merging some independent institutions, and perhaps at a later stage, merging some ministries, with the aim of streamlining the public administration and enhancing the efficiency and effectiveness of the government apparatus.
