This report evaluates the measures promoted by the Commission for Public Administration Reform (CORA) for achieving more austere, useful and effective administrations.
The event was chaired by the Vice President of the Spanish Government, Soraya Sáenz de Santamaría, who emphasized the commitment of the Spanish Government to this reform, which has already executed 30% of the planned measures. She added that this action will affect the culture and functioning of the administrations and that the Government will continue promoting it as a priority so that they work better, with greater transparency and efficiency in management.
Along these lines, she stated that the OECD report “helps greatly” because it makes it possible to confirm the progress made and compare it to that of other countries.
The Secretary General of the OECD, Ángel Gurría, on the other hand, pointed out that the reform process promoted by the Spanish Government is one of the most ambitious within the framework of the OECD. In his recommendations, he highlighted: “The opportunity the reform represents for restoring trust in institutions; the need to maintain the strategic link between the broad range of reforms so that they reinforce each other and multiply their impact; and that their implementation does not end with a government programme”.
The Minister of Finance and Public Administrations, Cristóbal Montoro, indicated that the reforms Spain is making represent a challenge and an opportunity for modernizing the public sector, improving it and reducing waste. ”We are making a comprehensive effort to offer quality services by laying the groundwork for an open and more efficient administration for the decades to come”, he stated.
