I am stating the obvious, but where inefficiency is endemic it is perhaps best to have less bureaucracy. But I do know the reasons for having lots of documents, some on special security paper and some adorned with ribbons; to keep people in jobs. The fact that many of those documents can be purchased forged, makes the overwhelming bureaucratic processes even more pointless. Time to look at what they do in more organised and efficient countries (for example, where you can buy a new car with the licence plate already on it and can actually drive it that very day!).
