WINDHOEK, 16 NOV (NAMPA) – The National Council (NC) will launch its five-year strategic plan for the period 2017/18 to 2021/22 before the end of this year.
This was announced by Vice-Chairperson of the National Council, Bernard Sibalatani at a stakeholders’ consultative meeting here Wednesday.
The half-day meeting was aimed at soliciting input to assist the Council to finalise its plan and to ensure that the expectations of the stakeholders are met.
Sibalatani explained that the drafting of the plan is part of Government’s overall strategy to encourage and facilitate a higher degree of coherence among public sector institutions.
He added that the strategic plan is also aimed at improving upon the systems of resource planning and performance management.
The idea, he noted, was endorsed by the NC as a deliberate strategy to better envisage the role and engagement of a democratic Parliament in a highly challenging economy, streamlining service delivery and widening public involvement.
Stakeholders present at the meeting included officials from the Ministry of International Relations and Cooperation, Anti-Corruption Commission, Office of the Prime Minister, Namibia Institute of Public Administration and Management, and the Law Society of Namibia.
