The standing committee on economics and public administration is hosting a workshop to analyse ministries and government agencies’ financial, human capital and development strategies.
During the four-day workshop, which kicked off yesterday in Otjiwarongo, progress and challenges facing public entities will be identified, while topics to be discussed include financial performance and capital projects.
Presentations from several ministries and state-owned enterprises (SOEs) explaining their mandate, challenges as well as plans for economic reclamation following the difficult 2019/2020 financial year will be delivered.
In his opening statement, committee chairperson Natangwe Ithete said the committee will tackle legal frameworks and financial and human resource management as well as seek solutions to ensure service delivery.
The committee is tasked to oversee programmes of government offices and activities relating to the country’s economy.
Reviving the economy
Meanwhile, public institutions will be challenged to present strategies to revive the economy following the detrimental impact of the Covid-19 pandemic.
“This platform will further serve as a platform for various stakeholders to interact with the committee on pertinent areas and issues of collaboration and assistance,” Ithete said.
Among the public entities expected to deliver presentations are TransNamib, the National Planning Commission, National Road Safety Council, Namibia Airports Company, Namibia Industrial Development Agency, Roads Authority, Namibia Civil Aviation Authority and Namibia Ports Authority.
The ministries of public enterprises, trade and industrialisation and finance will also deliver presentations.
