Support for Public Financial Policy Analysis

Introduction

The Ministry of Finance (MOF) has established a Policy Advisory Group (PAG) to provide high-quality and independent policy advice directly to the Minister of Finance and other senior leaders of the ministry. The PAG is responsible for establishing the basic infrastructure for policy analysis within the ministry, and to develop policy analysis and capacity within other departments and affiliated agencies of MOF.

The project will support the implementation of the work plans as approved by the Minister of Finance, focusing on priority areas outlined in the Socio-Economic Development Plan 2006-2010. The main components of the project are: (i) support to the PAG in its efforts to provide timely policy advice and recommendations on urgent policy issues to the Minister and other senior leaders of MOF; (ii) support to PAG studies on major strategic policy topics relating to the public finance system; (iii) contribute to the development of policy analysis and forecasting systems within MOF; (iv) support for public policy round-table discussions to improve transparency and public participation; and (v), support for training courses for MOF policy makers and policy makers from other relevant government agencies.

The project will also support public awareness activities and stakeholder consultations to ensure that policies are responsive to the public and consistent across government agencies.

What are the project's key results?

  • Policy advice and recommendations on public policies provided to MOF.
  • Improvement of strategies and plans, enhancement of role and functions and social equity and economic efficiency of the public finance system.
