Media reports often highlight challenges in the public sector, such as inefficiencies, rights abuses, and a disconnect with citizens.

A strong governance framework, emphasizing the rule of law, inclusion, transparency, collaboration, and participation is critical to improve the quality of a society. Effective leadership, informed policy-making, and partnerships are key to achieving this vision. Public sector leaders need to embody these principles, inspire their teams, and build trust with citizens.
