Pakistan formulated NAP to effectively deal with the scourge of terrorism: PM

ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Mohammad Nawaz Sharif on Tuesday said Pakistan has formulated the National Action Plan to effectively deal with the scourge of terrorism.

Talking to British Minister for the Cabinet Office and Paymaster General Francis Maude who called on, the Prime Minister said that bilateral relations between Pakistan and UK are based on sound footing and rooted in shared history and strong diaspora linkages.

He expressed satisfaction on the overall upward trajectory of Pakistan-UK bilateral cooperation and said that frequent high-level exchanges and regular consultations between the two countries are a hallmark of this relationship.

About Pakistan’s civil service structure, norms and practices, the Prime Minister said they are largely a continuation of those that the British introduced in the Sub-continent, but there is an urgent need to make the civil service more attuned and responsive to the present challenges and realities.

He said a reform process has been initiated and he is personally supervising the deliberations being done on civil service reforms.

Francis Maude said that people’s expectations and demands from public service delivery are growing and with the help of modern technology lots of services can be put online due to which the size of civil service can be reduced. He also conveyed best wishes of Prime Minister David Cameron.
