Bahrain's civil servants told to improve efficiency
Manama, July 5, 2010
Bahrain's civil servants have been ordered to pick up the slack to fast-track government-funded projects and public services.
Ministries and government departments were told to double their efforts and ensure there is no delay to services because of the summer holidays.
The orders came from His Royal Highness Prime Minister Prince Khalifa bin Salman Al Khalifa, as he chaired the weekly Cabinet meeting at Gudaibiya Palace.
Public service transactions and government-funded projects should be fast-tracked to cut out any delays, said HRH the Premier.
'Government services should always gain citizens' satisfaction and meet their needs,' he said.
He stressed the importance of ensuring that administrative procedures are not affected by the officials' and employees' annual leave.
A contingency plan is also being drawn up to fast-track work on repairing or rebuilding dilapidated homes which pose a potential danger.
The Cabinet instructed a technical sub-committee to work out procedures for the plan to be carried out, with a budget allocated for the purpose.-TradeArabia News Service
