Ghana launches national public sector reform strategy

ACCRA, Ghanaian President Nana Akufo-Addo on Wednesday launched the national public sector reform strategy (NPSRS) for the period 2018-2023.

Akufo-Addo said the NPSRS is expected to review and modernize the current structures, systems, processes and internal management functions of the public sector to support the government’s development priorities.

“It will also help create the conditions necessary for the private sector to thrive and thereby create employment opportunities for the youth all within the context of our overall vision of a Ghana Beyond Aid,” Akufo-Addo said.

According to him, the strategy would lead to the creation of a new public service that is fit for purpose which would help guarantee the delivery of high quality services for Ghanaians and the private sector.

Akufo-Addo stressed that a major goal of the reform would be to strengthen the human resource capacity of the public sector to improve its delivery.
