Chief Secretary –Public Service Ms. Jessie Esparon  made a short address for the occasion. 
She remarked that to be a public servant is not always easy especially in our modern time as the expectations of the public are high and they are constrained by several factors which very often are difficult to communicate and to understand.  “Yet as dedicated public servants we are guided by our superiors in the delivery of services to everyone’s satisfaction,” she said.

She congratulated all the long-serving employees with special mention to those receiving the awards and commended them on their dedication and loyalty to the service and their good work. The ceremony was also attended by the Designated Minister Mrs. Macsuzy Mondon.
