President Ferdinand Marcos Jr. on Wednesday called on civil servants to “remain honest and efficient” to reciprocate public trust and confidence bestowed upon them.

The President made the call in remarks at the awarding ceremonies held in Malacañang for the 2022 Outstanding Government Workers.

Let this occasion be a reminder to all government workers that a service rooted in compassion  and love for country and its people is indeed possible,” the Chief Executive said.

OUSTANDING STATE WORKERS. President Ferdinand Marcos Jr., in remarks at the awarding for 2022 Outstanding Government Workers at Malacañang, calls on all civil servants to maintain honesty and efficiency at the workplace in return for public trust and confidence.

“May the examples of our awardees inspire everyone, not only in government, everyone in the Philippines, to actively participate in our efforts to attain the national development agenda,” Mr. Marcos added.

He said he expected the celebration to be a “resounding call for all to embrace their role in uplifting the lives of every Filipino, noting government workers are privileged to be freely given the trust of the nation, for a public office is a public trust.”

“So, let us repay that confidence by serving them with utmost responsibility, efficiency, and honesty,” the President stressed.

He pointed out that being a public servant means accepting great responsibility and accountability and whatever one’s rank or employment status may be.

Being in government also entails espousing patriotism, integrity, and excellence in every single task and a deep and passionate love of country, he said.

The President also emphasized that a career in the government is not for everyone and state workers wholeheartedly giving real and selfless service day by day is an investment that only some can afford.

“The awardees’ achievements are indeed remarkable, and it is only right that they are bestowed the distinction and incentives that they deserve,” Marcos noted.

“Allow me to congratulate you on this recognition that proves that you have gone the extra mile

in carrying out your mandates, making you agents of progress and sources of inspiration in your respective sectors and communities,” the President said.

“You have clearly demonstrated that a compassionate and genuine heart lies at the center of your efforts,” he said.
