AS Fiji welcomes the New Year, government has reminded all civil servants to remain committed in delivering services to the members of the public.

Public Service Commission chairman Josefa Serulagilagi said the New Year would bring many exciting opportunities and developments.

"It is my hope that we (civil servants) will remain committed to bring about positive and meaningful changes to the people around us," Mr Serulagilagi said.

He also thanked all civil servants for the work that they have done for the year.

"I would like to acknowledge the hard work of all civil servants.

"Through your consolidated efforts, government has been able to launch, initiate and implement programs that have enhanced the quality of life of the Fijian people," Mr Serulagilagi said.

He said budgeted programs and activities by respective ministries and departments were being implemented and monitored throughout the year.

"Access to tertiary studies through scholarships and loans were provided.

"Social welfare initiatives were being made more accessible to communities, infrastructure development such as the construction of roads, health and educational facilities were being done.

"Civil servants benefited from local and overseas training opportunities.

"Reform programs continued to be implemented, and activities in the areas of the environment, climate change, tourism, trade, sustainable development, agriculture, land, and international relations allowed for many to benefit in terms of knowledge and skills."

He said despite many challenges Fiji faced during the year in terms of natural disasters and developments in the international front, he was thankful for the service that continued to be provided by the many committed and hardworking civil servants.
