President Gotabhaya Rajapaksa has emphasized that the secretaries of the ministries can make the government’s vision of prosperity success and that they should make a great commitment in this regard.
“I was a secretary in two of the most difficult ministries. Ministry of Defense, Ministry of Urban Development. So we secretaries have to make a big commitment. The secretaries will be able to make the program we have presented a success. In the next two years, we should be able to be successful with every effort.
We always have to do work that feels right in a ministry. We have given a program to all, we have given our policy statement. As secretaries, you have to think that ‘let us do this work here’. In particular, we must remember that everything in our country depends on the public service. So if it is not efficient the country will not move forward ”
The President made this observation addressing a meeting with the Secretaries of the Cabinet Ministries yesterday (19) after handing over the appointments to the new Secretary to the President and the new Secretary to the Prime Minister.
