PM opens workshop for civil servants

POSTED: 11/21/12 1:07 PM

St. Maarten – Prime Minister Sarah Wescot-Williams opened the civil servants workshop on the new structure and development of the Government of St. Maarten at the University of St. Maarten yesterday.

The workshop, which is partly funded by USONA, was geared towards making civil servants more aware of the various agencies and entities within government and what their roles are for Country St. Maarten. “It is important that all of us are well versed in the jobs we have to do. All government agencies have their independent roles since 10-10-10 and we are working hard to have everything structured to ensure that government is working for the people. We no longer have others doing the work for us, but we are now independently molding and shaping the infrastructure necessary for country St. Maarten. Civil servants have a critical role to play,” the prime minister said.

The two-week long workshop will feature presentations from the Council of Ministers, the Governor’s Cabinet, the Social and Economic Council, the Council of Advice, the National Ombudsman and the General Audit Chamber.

“We will bring in all civil servants on different days and discuss their goals in the running of government. We are forming the government together so I encourage all of you to interact and discuss the topics necessary in fine tuning our work. I believe this is another important building block in terms of training and preparing civil servants for the important job they have to execute,” the PM said.
