The V.P made the assertion Thursday at Kamuzu International Airport (KIA) when was addressing journalists on his return from Singapore where he had gone to attend a workshop under the invitation by Global Centre for Public Service Excellence.
“We had representatives from several other countries including Canada and the hosting Singapore who shared interesting cases from which we have learnt one or two things which we could borrow,” said Chilima further explaining that more details would be communicated later.
He however added that the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), under which Global Centre for Public Service falls, would be assisting Malawi in its implementation of the Public Service Reform agenda and strategy.
Incidentally, the workshop has come in about a month after President Prof. Peter Mutharika officially launched the Public Service Reforms Programme which is chaired by V.P Chilima.
The programme mainly aims at building a Civil Service that is professional, effective, efficient and ready to meet both current and future challenges of the country according to President Mutharika who had spoken during the launch.mana
