Development administration in Yemen, as in other developing countries, is still weak in its performance and the proportion of its production does not reach a rate of 35%, compared to the advanced administration in developed countries. It is therefore in need of training, qualification, and providing it with knowledge, developed information in order to achieve its goals fully.
What urges us to tackle the importance of developed administration is the people's search for justice and equality in rights and duties inside official administrative machinery or in dealing with the citizens. There are ongoing reforms led by the government to attain the development and productive objectives of the proper scientific administration. It is to be remarked that the program of administrative reforms has allocated a financial budget and the government has external grants and loans to carry out financial reforms at an expensive cost in order to attain the developed advanced administration.
Nevertheless, the development administration in Yemen requires more training for its cadres' in short training courses or seminars or training workshops on programs of limited effect because many of many of leading administrators, reaching about 45%, are basically in no possession of capability of qualification during a short period because originally they bear rather low degrees.
Therefore, here emerges priority in administrative development and the necessity of change and empowering young leaderships that are qualified to bear responsibility for effecting new styles and methods in the modern administration work.
Although administration work remains a fertile environment help develop administrati9on in case there is an acceptance of change, or a sterile environment in case of refusing change, and the latter blocks the desire of administrative reform because it refuses modernization and impedes attaining the aspired for development administration.
Using the language of production, the traditional administration would stay non-productive and derelict in performance in addition to hindering administrative development as well as wasting potentials and public properties.
Hence, efforts of financial and administrative reforms process should be channeled to creating an essential change in administration leaderships so that to realize their goals of equality of opportunities and obtaining productive gains of avail in interest of the entire economic performance.
It is also observed that the measures taken up to now are still at the start-point towards development administration aimed at realization of the principle of justice for all and equality among members of administration in rights and duties for the increase of production and ending failures resulting from administrative negligence.
Out of all this, it could be concluded the stress on importance of advanced administration and work for qualitative change of administrative leaderships to achieve success for attaining an effective developmental administration.
