President Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. on Tuesday urged career government executives to “reinvent the bureaucracy” and always prioritize public welfare.
“All of you have my trust and my confidence. I therefore hope that you will join me in reinventing this bureaucracy. Let us reinvent ourselves and reinvent the bureaucracy,” said Marcos at the 49th Founding Anniversary of the Career Executive Service Board (CESB) held at the Philippine International Convention Center.
“Let me also reiterate that, for this administration, the welfare of our people and the improvement of their lives are of utmost importance, and that as it should be.”
Marcos encouraged the officials to pursue the administration’s 8-Point Socioeconomic Agenda — policies that promote social justice, ensure food security, accelerate progress, protect our environment, and address climate change.
“Remember that we are here not for our own gain. We are here to bring forth a government that provides for the needs of the people,” said Marcos.
“Most importantly, let us be vigilant against temptation and corruption and other acts that diminish the public trust,” he added.
The CESB serves as the governing body of the Career Executive Service and is tasked to promulgate rules, standards, and procedures on the selection, classification, compensation, and career development of members of the CES.
The CESB said the CES is the “brainchild and legacy” of the late President Ferdinand Marcos Sr. to “form a continuing pool of well-selected and development-oriented career administrators who shall provide competent and faithful service.” — DVM, GMA Integrated News
