Overhaul of public sector to save more money
The Czech government is planning an overhaul of the public sector which would save state coffers up to 12 billion crowns in 2014 and close to 25 billion the year after. Individual ministries have until mid-July to revise their expenses and say where money could be saved. A merging of ministerial agendas is not being ruled out. Deputy Prime Minister Karolina Peake has been commissioned with drafting a proposal for the respective changes by the autumn.
