Strengthening our Public Sectors - Alek Łaszek, Senior Manager in Deloitte

Economic turbulence contributes the risk of fiscal shocks negatively impacting the budgets afforded to key public services. The public sector may soon be expected to deliver more, at a higher standard, and yet with fewer resources. Efficiency catalysed through technological improvements is one of the most promising ways to achieve this. We will:

• Outline key threats that may impact the public sector and associated key services
• Present examples of solutions already capable of alleviating the pressures faced
• Look at potential sources of financing that may support an adaptation to demands of tomorrow
