EU Commissioner Moscovici Meets with Admin. Reform Minister Mitsotakis

EU Finance Commissioner Pierre Moscovici, in Athens on an official visit, and Administrative Reform Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis met on Monday and discussed the reforms implemented in the last 18 months in public administration, focusing on targeted actions to reduce bureaucracy and on plans for 2014-2016.
The administrative reform for 2014-2016 includes new organisational charts for ministries, further reductions of administrative burdens, strengthening administrative repercussions for violations, a new system of evaluating civil servants' efficiency, the domestic labour market, strengthening the role of Centres for Citizen Information (KEP) and upgrading electronic governance.
Moscovici said Mitsotakis was "an effective factor" in the civil service's reform and acknowledged that "a lot has been accomplished in that sector." He added that the approach the minister was using of moving from a quantitative to a qualitative approach in reforms - where citizens want to know where their taxes go - was an approach of the future.
