Public servants in St Lucia will on Friday join their counterparts around the globe in the observance of World Public Service Day.

This day was designated to recognize three important roles of the Public Service, including celebrating the value and virtue of public service to the community; highlighting the contribution of public service in the development process and recognize the work of public servants; and encouraging young people to pursue careers in the public sector.

The United Nations holds a Public Service Awards ceremony each year to reward the creative achievements and contributions of public service institutions worldwide.

The Organization also encourages member states to organize special events on that day to highlight the contribution of public service in the development process.

Many public service organizations and departments around the world celebrate this day by holding activities that include: information days where stalls and booths are set for public servants to give the public information about the public service; organized lunches with guest speakers; internal awards ceremonies within public service agencies or departments; and special announcements to honour public servants.

June 23rd was designated World Public Service Day by United Nations General Assembly in 2003.
