Senior Government Officials will be placed in groups based on their area of expertise in an effort to come up with ideas that will help the Ministry improve its performance. The discussions will be guided under three basic headings: Major achievements in the selected topic areas; what factors have contributed to these achievements and how these factors can be built on to create new achievements and new paradigms.
