Prime Minister Thongloun Sisoulith has called on the Ministry of Home Affairs to adhere to scientific ways in the development of governance and administration, with their strong roots developed from an early stage. Mr Thongloun made the call on December 7 in his address at the annual meeting of the ministry to review the achievements in the past year and discuss the plan for the future. He spoke about the country as a body, which he said has an architectural structure. If the architectural structure has strong fundaments, we will not need to modify it in the future, Mr Thongloun said. We should build the foundation as strong as possible because it would be better if only little modifications are made through necessity, he added. Prime Minister Thongloun stressed for any change not be made based on the desire of an individual, but accompanied by scientific discussion and consultation, research and analysis. He commented some mistakes were allowed concerning this sector in the past, especially the arrangement of unnecessary jobs for people, saying this would have long term effects.
