PIA Press Release

Make gov't presence felt, PIA urges Region VI officers

by T. Villavert

Iloilo City (25 September) -- "For people to know the government, they must feel its presence through its efficient delivery of services," PIA VI Assistant Dirtector General, Atty. Janet C. Mesa said during the opening of the "Government Express Goes to the Mall" at SM City, yesterday.

The activity, for three days is intended to make government services more accessible to the public. With several government agencies in Region 6 setting up a "one stop shop" of their front line service, the activity is in line with the 107th Anniversary celebration of the Philippine Civil Service.

Director Mesa, who is also the president of the Regional Association of National Government Executives said that if the public is aware of what the government is doing for them, "they will realize that they are part of the government, and that the government is accessible to serve them".

"The express service in the mall, is one way of informing the people what government services are available to them and how they can go about availing of these services in an expeditious and efficient manner," Director Mesa said.

Director Mesa emphasized that "there might be rotten eggs in the bureaucracy, but the rest of the bureaucracy are composed of men and women who are committed to their jobs, to their agencies and to the government".

"If a few drops of the ocean are dirty, it does not make the whole ocean dirty," Director Mesa said quoting Gandhi.

Given the constraint government is faced in terms of resources, issues and problems, Director Mesa urged government workers to do "our best and prove to the public that we are doing our jobs". (PIA) [top]
