THE four-day Public Service Commission Strategic Review Indaba held in Victoria Falls ended with stakeholders agreeing on the need for the Commission to complement government efforts in the attainment of Vision 2030.
The engagement to transform the public service is strengthened by the government’s resolve to ensure the civil service plays a critical role in facilitating national development programmes.
The Public Service Commission Strategic Review Indaba deliberated on the need to improve efficiency in line with set targets and public expectations.
With the ultimate objective being to achieve the targets of National Development Strategy One and other policy drivers in the national economic transformation agenda, invigorated public service has been described as key.
“There was a robust and candid engagement of self-examination. The leap that the president talks about should be evident in all the work that we pursue,” said Ambassador Jonathan Wutawunashe, Public Service Commission Secretary.
The Indaba concurred on the need to fully complement government programmes by pursuing a paradigm shift in public service operations.
It was attended by the Public Service Commission leadership, its Tripartite Forum partners, the Office of the President and Cabinet and Treasury as well as cooperating partners, including the UNDP.
