Public Servants must uphold public service ethics while serving in their respective organisations, to bring impact to the country, says Papua New Guinea Institute of Public Administration Governing Council Chairman, John Kali.
He said this when addressing over 200 hundred public servants who graduated today in various certificates and diploma programs, from the Papua New Guinea Institute of Public Administration in Port Moresby.
Present to witness the Papua New Guinea Institute of Public Administration 19th Graduation among student’s families and friends, were Australian Public Service Commissioner John Lloyd and delegates, Heads of Departments, the UPNG Vice Chancellor, and Finance Minister James Marape.
PNGIPA Governing Council Chairman John Kali, speaking to the 275 graduands, maintained that the institution will reopen centres by partnering with existing institutions in the four regions in the country.
Australian Public Service Commissioner John Lloyd commended the graduands and urged them to uphold public service ethics in order to contribute positively in the public service.
