GIS– 27 June, 2018: The role played by the Civil service of Mauritius in upholding the agenda of Government was the central theme of the message of the Minister of Civil Service and Administrative Reforms, Mr Eddy Boissézon, addressed to public servants in the context of the United Nations Public Service Day 2018.
He expressed his satisfaction that the Civil service has succeeded in reinventing and adapting itself to meet the challenges at the different stages of development of Mauritius to ensure that the needs of one and all are met and that the country continues to prosper on the economic, social, commercial and cultural fronts.
“Civil servants have proved that they are capable to adopt better and innovative approaches, and to successfully tackle the complexities and challenges in terms of the needs of our ever-changing society” said Mr Boissézon.
According to the Minister this date is not only an opportunity to celebrate the achievements and contribution of the Public service to the advancement of the community, but also to reflect on how it can continue to play a meaningful role in promoting the socio-economic development of the country. Past experiences worldwide, he added, have shown that without an effective, efficient and competent Public service, the sustainable socio-economic development of a country is at risk.
He outlined that Civil servants are adequately equipped with the relevant skills and expertise to implement public policies and Government measures for achieving the goals and objectives as spelt out in the Vision 2030.
The Minister made an appeal to all Public Officers to remain mobilised and fully committed. He also encouraged them to strive to help place Mauritius among the high-income economies within the next decade so that the future generations can enjoy a better and more comfortable standard of living.
