ADAA event part of the Kingdom’s effort to drive forward Vision 2030 plans
RIYADH, July 26 (CIC) – Saudi Arabia’s Permanent Mission to the World Trade Organization (WTO) and the Saudi delegation to the United Nations held a high-level workshop for the National Center for Performance Measurement of Public Agencies (ADAA) in Geneva this week.
The workshop was organised as part of the centre’s effort to implement its core mission, which is to put into effect processes to measure the performance of public entities, thus driving forward the Vision 2030 development plans though accountability, accuracy and efficiency.
The workshop included the introduction of the International Performance Hub as an electronic platform, developed by the centre to provide an overview of the performance of more than 200 countries around the world measured through more than 700 global performance-measurement indicators.
The workshop was attended by many heads of international organisations, including Roberto Azevêdo, Director General of the World Trade Organization; Michael Michael Møller, Director General of the UN Office at Geneva; Dr. Abdulaziz bin Mohammed Al-Wasel, Ambassador-designate to the UN European headquarters in Geneva; Saleh bin Eid Al Hussaini, permanent representative of Saudi Arabia at WTO; and Salah Abdullah Al-Muraiqeb, Consul General of Saudi Arabia in Geneva. Also, present at the occasion were more than 40 ambassadors at WTO, as well as representatives from the United Nations and other international organisations in Geneva.
The Saudi delegation was led by Mr Husameddin AlMadani, Director General, the National Center of Performance Measurement; Miaad Al-Harbi, Collaboration manager; and Sara Al-Fares, Project Manager of the International Performance Hub.
Al-Madani said that the establishment of the centre chaired by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman was an indication of the Kingdom’s seriousness about building a prosperous future for the country.
The effort drew particular praise from Azevêdo, who highlighted the Kingdom’s efforts to carry out economic reforms and development. He said that the centre would increases transparency and opportunities for cooperation and organisation with different parties to serve performance-measurement indicators. He also expressed WTO’s keenness to cooperate with the ADAA centre to develop the International Performance Hub.
