Responsive bureaucracy essential for uplift: Mukhtar



Chairman Higher Education Commission (HEC), Dr. Mukhtar Ahmed Tuesday said that the bureaucracy responsive to people’s needs plays a crucial role in improving the system’s efficiency that leads to fast-paced development.

He was speaking during a meeting here with a group of 19 senior civil servants from Sri Lanka who are in Pakistan for two weeks of executive training at the National Defense University (NDU), Islamabad.

The delegation was accompanied by the Dean of the Faculty of Contemporary Studies (FCS), National Defense University, Islamabad. This endeavor is being undertaken as a vital part of the “Pak-Sri Lanka Higher Education Cooperation Programme,” executed by HEC Pakistan.

HEC has already conducted two other cohorts of executive training for senior civil servants of Sri Lanka with the collaboration of the National School of Public Policy (NSPP), Lahore.
