Heads of Departments across the Public Service were commended for their hard work and dedication when they were formally introduced to Premier and Minister of Finance, Honourable Andrew Fahie and his administration at a special meeting on June 13.

The meeting was held at the Government House Reception Hall following the Public Service Star Membership Club Pinning Ceremony officiated by Acting Governor at the time, His Excellency David D. Archer Jr.

His Excellency David D. Archer Jr. said, “I think this is an amazing start for us as we collectively guide and lead an amazing Public Service and in turn, an amazing BVI.”

Premier Fahie congratulated the public officers for their hard work and dedication to the development of the Public Service.

He said, “We know that at all times we would not see eye to eye, but we must stay under one common goal. Unity does not mean sameness of mind; it just means that you have the same objective which is to have a world class Public Service.”

The ministers and junior ministers also shared words of gratitude to the heads and stated that they are looking forward to strengthening the working relationships going forward.

The Public Service, as an organization, is responsible for delivering on ministerial mandates established by Cabinet and Ministers of Government.
