But all of these ads are actually produced by ad agencies, not the Ministry itself, which occupies a gargantuan multi-level complex facing the central bank in Hamra.
I’ve been there several times myself, navigating a maze of offices on its many floors. If the main output is these outsourced commercials then what do ministry employees–there must be hundreds of them throughout the building– actually do everyday?
This is a question that can probably be asked of the 20 odd ministries that currently exisit and employ thousands while producing very little, at least in terms of publicly viewable policies, projects or deliverables.
