Promote Designated book reading for civil servants; materialize life-long learning philosophy



To nurture civil servants’ autonomous learning and knowledge pursuit capabilities, the NACS formulates a reading promotion program to motivate civil servants. Through a series of reading promotion activities and study groups , we want to expedite the promotion of reading philosophy, develop into a learner-centered organization, and to realize life-long learning philosophy amongst civil servants. 


1. “Book of the month” campaign

To encourage civil servants to read visionary and insightful books, we invite experts, scholars and publishers to provide a recommendation list of books (up to 1,000) over the recent five years. The collection of recommended books is separated into two categories, i.e. “public policy and management capabilities” and “self-development and humanitarian care”. From the recommendation list, we then conduct a three-phase selection process and online voting to determine the short list of 12 best books for the “book of the month” campaign.
