The new Government Directors officially received their appointment letters at the Vanuatu Institute of Public Administration and Management (VIPAM) office yesterday afternoon.
Public Service Commission (PSC) Chairman, Martin Mahe, has congratulated the directors in their appointments and reminded them that the PSC needs their support to help carry out the Government’s National Sustainable Plan.
Chairman Mahe said PSC is waiting to see the expansion of the government’s decentralization process this year. He said commitment is a key to driving Vanuatu’s development forward.
Mr Mahe added that PSC will be there always to assist in any way possible. He also took the time to acknowledge all outgoing directors and formally congratulated the newly appointed directors.
Speaking on behalf of the directors, Director of Cooperatives, Ridley Joseph acknowledged the PSC for placing its trust on them and also applauded Mr Mahe for addressing gender equality.
Director Joseph assured the PSC that all directors will commit to performing their duties within the 3-year contract agreement.
“Today we are here to move forward,” he said. “If you run the race alone you’ll go fast, but if we run the race together we will go far.”
In conclusion, Mr Joseph wished the PSC and all directors the best in their journey towards achievement and success.
The PSC confirmed that other vacant director positions will be filled in next week.
The program ended with refreshments for everyone.
