Containing the Size of the Civil Service

Through process re-engineering, procedure streamlining and organisational review, the civil service establishment had been reduced from around 198 000 in January 2000 to about 161 000 in March 2007.  To facilitate the delivery of new policy initiatives and improved services to the public, the annual growth of the civil service establishment had been mostly in the range of 1% to 1.5% between 2007-08 and 2016-17.  In 2017-18, the civil service establishment is estimated to increase by about 2% and stand at 181 912 posts at the end of March 2018.
