Description
Strengthening local government, decentralizing bureaucracies, promoting investment and enhancing the private sector were among measures that could be taken to support the role of public administration in development, speakers said this morning, as the General Assembly continued its resumed session on public administration and development.

Speaking for countries from various regions and levels of economic development, representatives shared their experiences in reforming governmental structures to make them more responsive to the needs of the people. Many stressed that the United Nations had a key role to play in promoting that process of information sharing, as well as in executing specific projects through its agencies, such as the United Nations Development Programme.

Statements were made by the Director of the Division of Public Management Reform of the Finnish Institute of Public Management of Finland; Minister in the Office of the Prime Minister of Israel; Head of the Department for Administrative Reform of the Council of Ministers of Bulgaria; Minister of Administration and Development of Jordan; and a Professor of Administrative Science at the University of Athens, Greece.

Also addressing the Assembly were the representatives of Singapore, Venezuela, Albania, Iran, Kazakstan, Sweden and Nepal, as well as representatives of the Commonwealth Secretariat and the League of Arab States.

The Assembly will meet again at 3 p.m. today to continue its consideration of the role of public administration in development.
