Public service to be restructured: Govt.

Structural and administrative changes in the overall public service will be brought to the attention of the Cabinet of Ministers including the President and the Prime Minister, said Presidential Task Force on Economic Revival and Poverty Eradication Chairman Basil Rajapaksa.

He was speaking at a discussion with a group of representatives of the Sri Lanka Planning Service at Temple Trees on Saturday (15).

Furthermore, he said the management of the Sri Lankan workforce should be done in accordance with the needs of the country.

In addition, when making plans for education and vocational training in the country, “the country’s workforce should be made the goal”, he said.

He further said that a data conservation centre must be established to conserve data collected by government agencies for a comprehensive development process not limited to infrastructure development.
