Secretary to the President Austin Fernando yesterday emphasised the responsibilities of public servants to serve the masses with utmost efficiency, transparency, honesty and commitment.

Addressing the staff members of the Presidential Secretariat, he said that public servants should totally commit to implement the policies of the Government in accordance with public service regulations in a transparent manner. He pointed out that public servants were duty-bound to serve the public.

Underlining the importance of working in absolute cooperation with other branches of the government service, he urged the staff members to join hands to enhance the efficiency of the public service from the first working day of the new year.

Fernando unfurled the national flag at the commencement of the function held on the lawns of the presidential secretariat. After all the staff members took a pledge of public service, Fernando addressed the gathering. All staff members of the Presidential Secretariat attended the function.
