Greece Sheds 200,000 State Jobs in Four Years


At least 200,000 public sector positions have been shed in Greece over the past four years, shrinking the state wage bill by about eight billion euros, according to Minister of Administrative Reform Kyriakos Mitsotakis.
Presenting the 2014-2015 administration reform agenda to officials of the European Commission, the OECD (Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development) and the European Public Administration Network (EUPAN), Mr. Mitsotakis underlined that “we are now moving from achieving quantitative targets to fulfilling qualitative reforms in an agenda presented by us.”
In his analysis of the national reform strategy, Mr. Mitsotakis placed special emphasis on providing better service for citizens by optimizing human resources processes to improve management selection and increasing data transparency.
