Chilima said they discussed the progress of Malawi’s Public Sector Reforms and how the US government can continue supporting the Reforms agenda in areas that require technical or financial resources.
” To this effect, I extended my appreciation to the Ambassador for the Video Conferencing equipment that the Public Sector Reforms Department received through the Local Government Accountability and Performance (LGAP) Programme – a US government funded initiative.” Said Chilima.
Writing on his Facebook page the Vice President said at a time when Covid-19 is limiting us from physical interaction, such technical assistance for virtual communication is critical and highly valued.
Chilima appreciated the US government’s technical support to the Malawi government’s Reforms agenda.
He added that the US government has also been crucial in supporting the review of the Public Service Bill which calls for appointments by Merit in the public service.
Chilima assured Ambassador Scott that the administration of His Excellency Dr. Lazarus Chakwera is determined to implementing the Reforms agenda for the benefit of the people through enhanced efficiency, effectiveness and professionalism in the Public Sector.
