THE Public Service Commission has encouraged government ministries and departments to become more accessible and responsive towards the people of Fiji.

Responding to concerns about the unavailability of northern contacts for certain departments and ministries, commission permanent secretary Parmesh Chand said the availability of official phone contacts was mandatory.

"Each ministry and department strives to provide efficient services to the public and is respectively responsible for availing themselves and their services, especially in terms of listening to the plight of the customers," Mr Chand said.

"Most government departments are listed in the Blue Pages of the Fiji Telephone Directories except for those who have just recently opened up their offices in the North."
