The Malawi University for Science and Technology (MUST) has emerged as the most outstanding institution in the implementation of the Public Sector Reforms Agenda.
This was brought to light by Chief Secretary to the Government Lloyd Muhara in Lilongwe Monday during the opening of a five-day sectoral conference on the implementation of the public sector reforms.
Muhara said; “MUST has programmes and activities that are in direct alignment with the country’s economic needs. It is so far the best department in the education sector on the implementation of the reforms.”
The conference aims at providing a platform for representatives from all Government Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDA), under which the reforms are being implemented, to share notes and experiences on successes and challenges and how best they can move forward.
The Chief Secretary said it is pleasing to note that the reforms have received desired response from the entire public service as no one wants to be left behind.”
He reminded officials that the aim of the Reforms Agenda is not to merely draw up a list of activities and submit them for approval,
“The activities that we undertake should bring positive change in the way we conduct business, thereby improving the benefits to our people,” Muhara said.
Among the sectors represented at the conference are Education and skills development, Agriculture and water, Transport and infrastructure, and Finance.
The conference runs from 21 to 25 August.
