Commonwealth member governments have been taking part in a unique mapping exercise, identifying the actual changes which have been made in some key areas of public service management. The Public Country Profile Series sets out the results of the mapping exercise, country by country, to provide an unprecedented insight into the real managerial and structural changes under way in the public service.

In providing some firm ground on which those public servants, both elected and appointed, who are faced with the challenge of public service reform can stand while assessing the options available, the Public Country Profile Series marks a milestone in the debate concerning the management of the public service.



Improving Policy Analysis and Co-ordination

Cabinet has established four Standing Committees of Energy, Agriculture, Tourism and Industry, and Services to advise on sectoral policies and to oversee and coordinate the development of major projects on these sectors. These Committees are chaired by the Prime Minister and comprise a mix of ministers, senior public servants and private sector personnel with expertise and interest in these areas. The Standing Committee on Energy was the first to be established, consequently the Terms of Reference of the other three were patterned on this Committee.
