Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar
said past mistakes will not be repeated
in managing the T&T economy through
falling oil prices. Noting that the people
of this country are no strangers to change,
she said the public sector will take the
spotlight as the beacon of change.
Speaking at Wednesday s launch of the
T&T Diamond Standard Brand, a project
of the Ministry of Public Administration
(MPA), at Queen s Hall in St Ann s, Per-
sad-Bissessar said: "We have enjoyed the
heights of boom and held each other s
hands as we navigated the depths of bust.
We have felt the joy of confidence in our
stability as a nation and we stood fearlessly
in the time when our liberty was threat-
"These are the very experiences that
make a country into a nation; that make
individuals into a unified society. And,
with centuries of history and over half a
century of Independence, we stand today,
stronger, together." She told public servants
the positive strides they made prepared
the country for the challenges now being
"You will all know of the turbulence in
the global energy sector and the impact it
has had on prices and the revenue we earn
as a nation. It is not something new. Quite
the contrary! We have been down this road
before. "But today, there is a difference---
the mistakes of the past are etched as
relentless memories for some of us, and
as guidepost for knowing and doing better
for us all; this is why our approach to man-
aging challenges is different from any other time
in the past," she said. Persad-Bissessar added:
"Today, it is not simply about reducing spending
and finding new channels for revenue. Today, we
appreciate the value of good service, of efficient
and productivity. We can see and measure how
good and efficient service can impact on expenditure
and with your work over the past two years, we
know it is possible. The spotlight therefore shines
on the public service. As we make adjustments and
return to the old adage of value for money, it is in
your name that my Government has promised to
put people and country first."
When projects for the national benefit are ini-
tiated, she said, it was the public servants who held
the key to its successful completion and when
people need urgent help, public officers were the
ones they relied on to receive help in the quickest
"You are the ones who hold the influence to make
it easier for support to reach people, for business
to achieve efficiency, for young professionals to
grow and indeed, for our desire for growth and
development to be achieved. Your successes to date
prove that change is not only possible, but that it
is a process in motion."
In the feature address, Public Administration
Minister Carolyn Seepersad-Bachan said in the first
phase of the programme Diamond Standard Cer-
tificate have been awarded to 11 public sector agen-
cies and 45 more have registered for the next round.
This is a standard which these organisations have
worked hard towards, and met, and in some cases,
even exceeded. Their certificates will be valid for
three years, after which, they will be required to
re-apply for re-certification.
"Awardees are encouraged to continue seeking
new heights in service excellence; even re-engineer
their processes to ensure they remain dynamic and
responsive," she said.
The Diamond Standard Programme seeks to
achieve greater customer satisfaction; greater com-
mitment to providing quality service; enhanced
accountability, efficiency and effectiveness in service
provision; improved public image for investors local-
ly, regionally and internationally; and improved
rankings for ease of doing business and global com-
Govt won't repeat past economic mistakes
