Georgia announces public service reform

The process of creating the document was supported by the United States Agency for International Development., 01 Jul 2014 - 13:25, Tbilisi,Georgia

Georgia will have a more "organized and transparent” public service system thanks to a reform the country is about to adopt.

Head of the Public Service Bureau Ekaterine Kardava presented the reform concept today. The document covered ten key aspects including salary regulations and gender equality for those employed in the public sector.

Kardava said the concept was based on the world’s best practices. A number of international and local experts were involved for several months in creating a frame to determine the nature of the reform.

It is not known yet when the reform will be implemented but the Georgian Government has already approved the document.
