Govt to cut down committees, meetings

KUWAIT: The cabinet has asked the Civil Service Commission to reduce the number of government committees to a minimum, and cut meetings outside working hours unless it was absolutely necessary. This would help trim down the cost of forming committees and holding meetings that reaches KD 50 million annually, a government source said. They added that State Audit Bureau reports have shown that senior government officials were receiving ‘large amounts of money’ for registering in government committees without necessarily attending their meetings. – Al-Jarida
