PIDE series on institutional reform are important to generate a national debate on this important notion of getting the government right. Several questions are the center of the discussions such as, who makes policy? What civil service is doing? Is regulation, managing PSEs and education, etc. the job of civil servants? Who owns the city? Why do there have civil service tribes, where are the professionals? Civil service reforms are a central subject for development in Pakistan. Unfortunately, there is a lack of understanding of civil service. Institutions are important for economic development & growth. Reforms are not only changing names of things, but the connections are important. We have to connect with the actual public sector, organizations & institutions. We need to connect with matters, edifice of civil service and the notion of reforms.
