Vice President of the Maldives Hussein Mohamed Latheef has expressed his hope that the Maldives civil services will fully support the achievement of one of President Dr. Mohamed Muizzu’s primary objectives: to expedite the delivery of services to the people and modernize the services provided.

He made these remarks during his speech at the opening ceremony of the Maldives Civil Services Conference this morning at Dharubaaruge. Vice President Latheef emphasized that the civil service plays a crucial role in achieving the targets set by the incumbent government and fulfilling the promises made to the people.

“The Maldives Civil Service has been instrumental in the national effort to achieve the goals of every government. For this, I would like to express my sincere gratitude to all the members of the Civil Service and the civil servants of the country,” he said.

He highlighted that serving the people is a significant responsibility, requiring utmost patience, care, and compassion. He also noted that every citizen desires to receive services seamlessly from every government ministry and office without any hassles.

“Hence, the civil service plays an important role in running a government. The government needs the sincere support of the civil services. The most important goal of President Dr. Mohamed Muizzu’s national service is to speed up the delivery of services to the people, modernize the services provided, and work tirelessly to achieve the country’s desired goals. I am hopeful that the Civil Service will fully support the national mission initiated by the President,” he stated.

The Civil Services Conference is scheduled for today and tomorrow at Dharubaaruge. The theme for this year’s conference is “Smart Governance for Civil Services Excellence.”

This biennial conference, initiated in 2014, aims to research and understand civil services while identifying areas for improvement. It also includes academic discussions on modern changes necessary for service enhancement.

This year’s edition will feature the presentation of 12 papers across three thematic areas: adapting work processes in light of modern technology, building a responsible civil service that effectively serves the public, and transforming workplace culture to align with good discipline and values. Additionally, the conference will host keynote speeches from two foreign and two local speakers. About 280 participants, including top hierarchy officials, state ministers, deputy ministers, city mayors, council presidents from atolls, and other senior officials, are expected to attend.
