GCC approves Kuwait’s report - Administrative corruption

RIYADH, Dec 6, (KUNA): Chiefs of Gulf Cooperation Council civil service bodies approved the report presented by the Kuwait Civil Service Commission on means and coordination of efforts to counter administrative corruption, as they concluded their 11th session, Wednesday.

The gathered officials also approved a document on principles to govern GCC civil service, human resources, and administrative development sectors’ activities, presented by the United Arab Emirates’ Federal Authority for Government Human Resources, and the guiding principles are to enter into effect in January 2013.

The meeting recommended that GCC civil service undersecretaries be charged to present an assessment of challenges facing this sector and how to tackle the issues and problems related to job seekers in GCC countries.

The chairman of the meeting was Saudi Arabia’s Minister of Civil Service Abdallah bin Abd Al-Rahman Al-Barrak, who stressed the important role played by the government sector in managing and supporting all aspects of development. He also stressed it is vital civil service bodies serve as capable, open, advanced, and suitably equipped bodies and show more cooperation and coordination, and that they earn and maintain the respect of and credibility with both leaders and members of the public.

Noting there are many ongoing efforts in the area of administrative reform in the region, he recalled that it was cause for pride to have a member state, the Sultanate of Oman, as a several-time recipient of the United Nations Public Service Award (UNPSA).

The Saudi official noted the conference being organized by the Saudi Institute of Public Administration next week titled “Administrative Development in the Cooperation Council for The Arab States of The Gulf: Change and Development Challenges: Looking Ahead”, saying it is proof of GCC resolve on joint action in this field.
