Equal access to services

GOVERNMENT must be committed to delivering results to all Fijians, no one should receive preferential treatment because of who they are or who they know, says Prime Minister Rear Admiral (Ret) Voreqe Bainimarama during the launch of the leadership model for Public Service Commission in Suva yesterday.

Rear Admiral (Ret) Bainimarama said one of his most fundamental beliefs was that all Fijians deserve the same access to government service no matter what their background was or where they live.

"We rely on the civil service not just to keep the country running, but to also help the national leadership anticipate needs and chart the future. Career public servants owe their loyalty to all Fijians, he said.

"That means they must work faithfully under the national leadership.

"The leadership sets priorities and the ultimate direction of the country, but the people depend on the civil service to execute programs and implement policies.

"For our part, we as government have also been focused on improving the working terms and conditions of all civil servants."
