Government ministries and department are gearing up for a public display of their services next week.
The ministry of iTaukei Affairs is putting together a mini exhibition to showcase Fiji’s language and culture.
Permanent secretary Savenaca Kaunisela said each division of the ministry will have a display table during the mini exhibition which will be set up on 87 Queen Elizabeth Drive at Nasese.
“This will include the Centre for Appropriate Technology and Development (CATD) which will also be part of the mini exhibition during Fiji Public Service Day here at Nasese,” Mr Kaunisela said.
Mr Kaunisela said the highlight of the day would be the cultural and language displays through iTaukei dances or meke and their Vucuand several other orators.
“The public is also invited to view several iTaukei Affairs DVDs on the different objective roles of the ministry,” Mr Kaunisela said.
Mr Kaunisela said the Public Service Day events organised by the Ministry will be with a difference as all section heads will be at the forefront to serve customers and deliver quality and timely services.
“It will be different because the PS and Deputy PS and all heads of divisions will be serving customers on the day,” Mr Kaunisela added.
“The Public Service Day will enable public to obtain first hand information and meet with heads of all divisions including the iTaukei Institute of Language & Culture, iTaukei Land & Fisheries Commission and its Project Unit, iTaukei Scholarship Unit, Development Division, Corporate Services Division, Media & Monitoring Unit, and the Appeals Tribunal.”
The Public Service Day iTaukei Ministry display will be available at Nasese from 8am on June 25.
On the other-hand, to spice up their programme for next week, the Ministry of Education, National Heritage, Culture and Art have coined the concept of Education Village as a strategy to help members of public learn about the services they have on offer.
Ministry permanent secretary, Dr Brij Lal said a host of activities have been organised in the education offices around the country to showcase the various services they provide to members of the public.
“Suva based Waisomo Basement will be set – up for public viewing where each section of the ministry will be allocated spaces for exhibition and public enquiries,” Dr Lal said.
“Teachers will also be present to respond to queries from the general public regarding classroom activities, class-based assessments (CBAs), Early Childhood Education and primary, secondary and vocational education.”
Dr Lal added that the nine education districts and four education divisions have been urged to assist Fijians in any way possible, hence taking public service delivery to a new level.
The ministry’s Education Village is a located along Thurston, Gorrie Streets and Macgregor Road and is home to Marela, Waisomo, Senikau and Quality Houses.
All these offices will observe a flag raising ceremony at 9am on Tuesday June 25, 2013.
