The PM says it is in line with the People’s Coalition Government’s vision of bringing about change for the better.

He says contrary to a day off, Civil Service Day will be a regular working day.

However, Rabuka says a series of events will be organized to celebrate achievements and stimulate a dialogue about the evolution of a modernized Civil Service in the 21st century.

To ensure a widespread and impactful celebration, each Ministry, Department, and Agency is tasked with organizing agreed-upon activities and events, utilizing existing funding and resources.

Rabuka emphasizes that there will be no additional funding sourced, underscoring a commitment to responsible financial management.
