(TAP) - Meant to provide institutional support for the implementation of the strategy of modernisation of the civil service in Tunisia, a twinning was launched on Friday between the General Committee of the Civil Service (CGFP) and its counterparts in France and Belgium.
Financed by the European Union worth 1.5 million euros (5.12 million dinars) for a period of 3 years, this project will be structured around four axes:
- Strengthen the institutional capacities of the services in charge of human resources management (HRM), to better manage the reform,
- Facilitate the implementation of a job and skills planning management system (GPEC) to make the most of agents and ensure that their career paths are aligned with a progression perspective,
- Increase the mobility of civil servants for a civil service that is closer to the citizens and in line with the realities on the ground,
- Better manage the wage bill and develop a decision-making information system for human resources (HR) in the public service to optimise the human resources available to the State.
Around 70 French and Belgian experts will come, for nearly 600 days of expertise, to accompany their Tunisian colleagues through training programmes, seminars and workshops, according to a statement of the European Union.
The French and Belgian partners will also receive their Tunisian counterparts within their administrations and in other public service institutions, as part of study missions, according to the same statement.
Present at the conference to launch the twinning, Minister of Civil Service, Administration Modernisation and Public Policy, Kamel Morjane commended the launch of this agreement which, he said, "will certainly help to give a new impetus to the civil service in Tunisia which has nearly 670 thousand civil servants".
This project, he stressed, is intended as an instrument to modernise the public service and adapt it to international progress in this area.
According to Fadhila Dridi, Project Manager, President of the General Committee on the Public Service (CGFP), the twinning aims to provide technical assistance for the implementation of the Public Service Reform Strategy developed since 2017 and adopted by the Ministerial Council.
