Ukraine to retrench 10,000 civil servants, merge ministries: Report
The Ukrainian government plans to scale down the number of ministries from 20 to 14 and reduce the number of civil servants, the Ukrainian newspaper Dzerkalo Tyzhnia (Mirror Weekly) reported on Wednesday.
The decision was made on Tuesday at a meeting between President Volodymyr Zelensky and the cabinet, where they discussed concepts for the government’s transformation, the newspaper said.
The economy ministry will presumably be merged with the ministries for strategic industries and agriculture to form a new ministry for economic development.
The report said the ministry for digital transformation would swallow the national agency of public service and part of the ministry for strategic industries.
The newspaper reported that the changes would not affect the Ukrainian ministries of the interior, foreign affairs, justice, defence, finance, healthcare, and education.
The report added that the staff of state employees in the ministries’ central offices is planned to be downsized from 9,200 to 2,800 and in regional offices from 17,000 to about 7,000.
