)-- Observing the United Nations Public Service Day Dr. Naseer Homoud, Goodwill Ambassador and Director of Middle East office for the Intergovernmental Institution for the use of Micro-algae Spirulina against Malnutrition (IIMSAM), the Permanent Observer to the United Nations Economic and Social Council while addressing the media said “the celebration of UN Public Service Day is an opportunity to reflect on the increasingly daunting challenges that face the public service and the capability of public officers to meet those challenges. In addition, it acts as a means of renewing commitment for a modern public service geared towards linking continuous improvement with sustainable development”.
In his message Dr. Homoud mentioned “first of all let me convey my congratulations to the Public Servants all across the globe who have continued to offer dedicated services, at times under extremely difficult circumstances. I also take this opportunity to sincerely thank them for having embraced the system and showing solidarity and providing quality public services to the peoples”. He added “A good public service is that solid foundation on which a country functions. Civil servants are the people who run the day to day affairs of a country and their services are essential at all times, on this day let us salute the tireless and non ending sincere and honest efforts of public servants who have left no stones unturned for serving the humanity”.
IIMSAM fully supports and joins with the United Nations in the observance of Public Service Day. It has been noted that the United Nations Public Service Day intends to celebrate the value and virtue of Public Service to the community, its contribution in the development process, recognize the work of Public Servants and encourage young people to pursue career in the Public Sector, and to this end IIMSAM, under leadership of its Director General His Excellency Ambassador Remigio Maradona, reaffirms its commitment to support the public service mechanism.
In his address Dr. Homoud asserted “indeed, it is impossible to attain prosperity and happiness in society only through economic and industrial development without backing and support of a strong, dynamic and effective public service system. For a balanced society to attain prosperity in all spheres it is mandatory to have on board an effective and well organized public service system and it would not be an exaggeration if we say effective public service machinery is the foundation for sustainable growth of any country”. He added “in this context, public servants should accept this challenge for social and economic transformation yet, it should be noted that this structure can only work through coordination and involvement of public at large and is entirely dependent on this approach”.
Speaking on the occasion Dr. Homoud said “it is an occasion to recognize the mechanism on which our civil society is based and without an effective balance between society and civil administration, we cannot dream to achieve the target of egalitarianism”. He contended “Let us celebrate the value and virtue of public service to our communities, highlight the contribution of public service in development and peace, and give due recognition to the work of public servants, especially by encouraging our young people to pursue careers in the public sector and make a lasting impact on their communities and countries”.
