Tackling bureaucracy


GRTU was this week invited to
attended a Press Conference during which Parliamentary Secretary for
bureaucratic reform, Dr  Michael Farrugia
said that bureaucratic reform was going to be a continuous process aimed at
changing practices in the civil service as well as changing the mindset of the
public sector employees.  He added that
where necessary the simplification of administrative processes would lead to
amendments to relevant laws.

GRTU Deputy President
Philip Fenech explained that GRTU is in favour of a bottom up approach and
where the approach is one where we work together and not an ‘us and them'
stand. GRTU also welcome this new energy which is intended to get things done.
This subject is always high on the EU agenda. As we have for long been stating
small business owners are hit by bureaucracy hardest as they lack resources to
deal with bureaucracy. GRTU argued in favour of simplification procedures that
would also contribute to less time consumption on work not necessary for their
business.

Mario Cutajar, Principal
Permanent Secretary, announced that as from October he will be meeting the
unions representing civil service employees to identify and implement the
necessary changes in the work practices. He explained that systems put into
force should satisfy the people's needs through an efficient system involving
qualified and skilled public service employees.

During the press
conference the input of social partners was requested. Members having any
issues to raise in this regard are to contact GRTU.
