The National Personnel Authority (NPA) is committed to providing various training courses and improving their quality with the aim of training national public employees to serve the entire population in the proper manner. In the report issued at the time recommendations were made last year, the NPA clearly demonstrated it was fully aware of the critical importance of securing senior officials with integrity and expertise in public administration and coaching them in order to ensure efficient and high-quality administrative management.
Recently, a bill has been submitted to the Diet to reform the national public employee system. In this context, the NPA considers it necessary to review the current system for training and developing senior officials and other public employees. Accordingly, a study group of experts will be organized to discuss human resource training and development in relation to public administration.
The study group is made up of eight experts from various fields (academic experts, private sector managers, media people and ex-public employees) who are well-informed about human resource training and development in public administration. The Secretary-General of the NPA will delegate tasks to each of these of experts.
