GRTU calls for increased centralization

During an MCESD
meeting where Social Partners discussed the Public Service Reform with Mario
Galea, Principal Permanent Secretary, GRTU Deputy President Philip Fenech
called for more centralization when it comes to the licensing a business
requires to operate.

Mr Fenech gave the example of a restaurant that is seeking
to have tables and chairs outside. He emphasized that the process is very
tedious and lengthy, if they manage to ever get the green light as they have to
deal with about 4 different authorities.

Mr Galea
said that they are working on this and in addition they are introducing the
concept of a public service that goes to the customer. This includes the area
of social services where the public sector will be contacting those eligible
and help them access their rights so as to ensure they have access to what is
due to them immediately when it is due.
