‘Public Sector Efficiency Creating Jobs’ – Williams

State Minister for Finance, Fayval Williams, says the government’s move to make the public sector more efficient has in some instances resulted in the creation of jobs.

Minister Williams says the government will be conducting a thorough assessment of all state agencies with the aim of making them more efficient.

The State Minister of Finance and Eastern St. Andrew MP was speaking with the media shortly after a JLP Area Council 1 meeting yesterday.

She also commented on the administration’s priorities following the recently negotiated Precautionary Standby Agreement with the IMF.

The agreement is to be approved by the IMF Executive Board in November.
