The president of the University of Information Technology and Communications Dr. Abbas Mohsen Al-Bakri accompanied by the Director General of the Department of Government Coordination General Policy Section of the General Secretariat of the Council of Ministers, Mr. Ali Makki, held a meeting to discuss the mechanisms for the implementation of the reform of the public service system in the General Secretariat of the Council of Ministers within the axes of the administrative reform strategy.

The meeting discussed the fifth axis of the management reform strategy, which aims to develop public services for citizens in coordination with the ministries of the interior, planning, communications and the General Secretariat of the Council of Ministers.

Makki said that the programme’s implementation mechanism was through the accounting and implementation of services that could be automated and shifted towards electronic governance through automation and linkage of State institutions.

He noted that this would be done through short-, medium- and long-term plans, and the formation of main committees to implement this aim of the strategy.
