ADJUSTMENTS TO ORGANIZATIONAL REFORM WITHIN THE SECRETARIAT
The adjustments and reforms to the Organizations structure and machinery in the Charter inevitably resulted in administrative changes particularly, within the General Secretariat. Several internal adjustments were made over the years to complement legislative decisions and mandates in the continuing discharge of the Secretariats work. A policy landmark in respect of administrative adjustments was the report and recommendations of the Committee of 1968, which was charged by the member states to advise on the reform of public administration and finance of the Organization.The Committees recommendations led to a revised structure of the entire Secretariat. Other important changes have taken place since 1968. Major changes in more recent times have involved the political, economic, trade, and legal and administrative areas of the Secretariats operations.
