The State management and public apparatus must exercise thrift practice in spending, trim personnel, and take into consideration work performance when allocating funding.
The Government would have to cut spending on seminars, conferences, foreign tours, festivals, anniversaries, ground-breaking ceremonies, inauguration ceremonies, other unnecessary expenses, and purchase of public cars.
