Default Lee Chin says 5-in-4 needs public sector accountability

With quarterly growth of 0.3 per cent, chairman of the 41-month-old Economic Growth Council (EGC), Michael Lee Chin, says that the permanent status of permanent secretaries under the Jamaican Constitution, has to be removed to enable higher gross domesitic product (GDP) growth levels.

Lee Chin, who was speaking at the latest press briefing held by the council at Jamaica House on Wednesday, said that until the lack of accountability related to the permanency of the job is removed, there is no possibility of achieving growth at the level of five per cent in four years, which had been projected by the EGC.

He noted that in the context of private corporations, the person responsible for implementation is the CEO, and in government the responsible person for the implementation of policies is the permanent secretary (in the ministry).

“Accountability is what makes plans work. In corporations, if a business plan is not executed, the CEO is fired. In government, if policies are not implemented on a timely basis, no one is fired. Until we fix this lack of accountability the public sector will continue to (fail to) achieve our desired goals; until we fix this lack of accountability issue, there will be no public sector transformation and until we fix this accountability issue achieving five per cent growth in four years will be an uphill task,” he stated.
