Amélie de Montchalin: “The rise in teleworking in the public service is strong”


The Minister of Transformation and Public Service, Amélie de Montchalin, is pleased that 40% of agents, excluding National Education and the police, are now teleworking. During an interview with “Echos”, she presents the charter that she has just developed with the main public services to ensure continuity during the reconfinement.

What are the challenges for the public service in this new period of confinement?

A challenge is imposed on me: it is absolutely necessary that the public services – which embody our Republic – are not defeated by the Covid and all remain open, which had not necessarily been the case during the first confinement. This is the essential condition for allowing economic, social and educational life to continue while limiting the spread of the virus.
