Our Goals

In today’s ever-changing and developing world, it is necessary that public management and services be restructured in order to maintain economic stability and development, particularly for young economies such as Lesotho, and to overcome the problems experienced. This transformation will inevitably cover improvement of the quality of services in a beneficiary-oriented manner and regulation of current public management so as to be more transparent, accountable and rational.
