The Secretary-General Message for United Nations Public Service Day
MESSAGE FOR UNITED NATIONS PUBLIC SERVICE DAY
The United Nations has long recognized the importance of good governance and efficient public administration. Current global consultations on the post-2015 agenda have further underscored their centrality to all development objectives.
United Nations Public Service Day encourages countries to celebrate the contribution of public servants to society’s progress.
Addressing today’s inter-linked challenges requires sound, forward-looking public policies and transparent, accountable governance structures that embody solidarity with the poorest and most vulnerable.
The 2013 United Nations Public Service Awards show how public services can be delivered more efficiently, innovatively and equitably. The winners demonstrate the basic ingredients for excellence: commitment and accountability, hard work and innovation, talent and technological know-how.
I encourage public servants around the world to work in the same spirit to help build an inclusive, prosperous and sustainable future for all.
