PUBLIC Service Commission permanent secretary Parmesh Chand is attending a three-day Pacific public service commissioners' conference in Apia, Samoa.

"We will share our experiences with our fellow neighbouring countries and also hear and learn from their experiences," Mr Chand said.

He said the conference would be an opportunity to gain new ideas and exchange initiatives for the improved delivery of services to the public.

The conference bears the theme "Public service role in social, economic, cultural and institutional change within the Pacific".

Mr Chand will provide an overview report on the Pacific Public Service Excellence Award (PPSEA) working group, which includes countries such as PNG and Vanuatu.

Fiji is the chair of the group, and a statement stated the PSC had been working closely with the secretariat of the conference and other members of the group to put together a framework for recognising excellence in public service delivery in the region.

Commission member Dr Akanisi Kedrayate is attending the conference with Mr Chand.
