Vatican City, July 19 - Pope Francis has set up a
new commission on the economic and administrative structure of
the Holy See, the Vatican said on Friday.
The pope has made reforming the Vatican's economic dealings
a priority and last month he set up a separate commission to
oversee its scandal-hit bank, the Institute for Religious Works
(IOR).
The Vatican said the new pontifical commission will report
to Francis and cooperate with the Council of Cardinals to study
the organisational and economic problems of the Holy See and to
draft reforms of its institutions.
The papal document that launched the commission said it
would "offer the technical support of specialist advice and
develop strategic solutions for improvement, so as to avoid the
misuse of economic resources, to improve transparency in the
processes of purchasing goods and services; to refine the
administration of goods and real estate; to work with ever
greater prudence in the financial sphere; to ensure correct
application of accounting principles; and to guarantee
healthcare and social security benefits to all those eligible".
The eight members of the Commission are lay experts in
legal, economic, financial and organisational matters who come
from Italy, Spain, France, Germany, Malta and Singapore.
