"The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) are worthy of congratulation for jointly organising this two-day workshop with PMO for the stakeholders on public service reform and institutional capacity development for the key stakeholders within the civil services sector across the country". The were the words of PS Sallah who was speaking at closing ceremony of a two-day workshop held recently at the Corinth Atlantic Hotel in Banjul. The workshop was for the key stakeholders within the civil service sector across the country. He asserted that, "as public servants we have lot of work to do in terms of reforming the public services sector." He said the public service capacity development board, at the first meeting, directed that a steering committee examine issues relating to its own terms of reference and the TOR of the capacity development adviser project manager including the manner of his or her recruitment.

Mr. Sallah therefore thanked the participants for their tireless effort despite their busy schedules to come and answer to their call and also thanked the Mr. Sallah at MDI, the principal co-ordinator of the workshop, for his tireless effort." No doubt the report from this workshop will perfect because a lot of experts attended this workshop including the staff from the PMO who knew the system of operation at PMO for years," he said. The Director of MDI, Mr. Yusupha Dibba, who also at one time served as permanent Secretary at the personnel Management office, also attended the workshop and expressed similar sentiments.
