Specific measures had been taken to enhance efficiency in the activities of both the Council and the Ministry in terms of ensuring proper social feedback. In accordance with a previous assignment, a monitoring group had been set up to assess the efficiency of the activities carried out by Council and public agencies in 2003 which involved representatives from different youth organizations. According to to the speaker, a similar group was due to be established for the year 2004.
