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.



With the economic and fiscal policies it applied, Turkey has fared rather well in relation to other countries during the financial crisis. This is clearly seen in the indicators relating to growth, employment, budgetary deficit and debt stock. The 2010 budget has been announced as the budget to exit the crisis, and this has been proved by the economic growth now being experienced. The main target of the 2011 budget is to ensure sustainable growth and to further recover financial balances.
