UNPOG’s Head, Amb. Lim attended the 15th session of the UN Committee of Experts on Public Administration (CEPA), which was held at United Nations Headquarters in New York from 18 to 22 April 2016.

The main purpose of this year's CEPA is to discuss how to transform public institutions so as to best support the implementation and review of the Sustainable Development Goals. The Committee reflected on how to elaborate and implement effective and innovative policies to realize the SDGs and review their impact.

Another theme is how to improve engagement and communication between Governments and various actors such as through access to information, and electronic and mobile solutions. On the agenda of the Committee are also ways to build trust in public administrations by addressing with corruption as well as efforts to develop transformative leadership and public servants' competencies.

The recommendations of the Committee will support the work of the Economic and Social Council and contribute to the review of the High Level Political Forum on sustainable development on "Ensuring that no one is left behind".

During the CEPA meeting, Amb. Lim actively consulted with CEPA members seeking their advice and support on UNPOG's future activities.
