Ladies & Gentlemen
I must first of all thank and acknowledge the hard work of the Permanent Secretary, management and indeed each individual in the Ministry for your hard work towards the attainment of your key deliverables in last year’s ACP. The award at the PSC Awards night speaks volumes of the hard work that was put in.
Much has been accomplished by Government in the last seven years in relation to the organizational restructure of the Ministry of Lands and Mineral Resources. The internal reforms led by the Honourable Prime Minister have laid a solid foundation that I intend to build on over the next four years beginning this year.
I am entering this role with a strong will to work with the management and staff on the platform set out in previous Annual Corporate Plans, to improve service delivery for our customers, ordinary people and investors alike.
