This report presents an overview of country initiatives concerning efficient, effective public services and open and innovative government. It focuses on four core issues:  delivery of public services in times of fiscal consolidation; a more effective and performance-oriented public service; promotion of open and transparent government; and strategies for implementation of a reform agenda.  These issues were discussed at the OECD Public Governance Ministerial Meeting held in Venice, Italy, in November 2010, hosted by the Italian Ministry for Public Administration and Innovation.



In its inaugural speech of 29 July 2009, the Luxembourg government stated that it would continue to modernise the central government during the 2009-14 period through a series of reforms aimed at improving quality, effectiveness and transparency. On this basis, a framework for action was prepared comprised of a series of measures to reform service delivery and improve the quality of public services, in particular in the field of egovernment, administrative reform and administrative simplification.
