Outlining the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, Patricia Scotland noted that with COVID-19, climate change and economic disruption, governments had faced big challenges in recent years. Our Heads of Public Service & Cabinet Secretaries Meetings are a vital platform for top civil servants to share experiences, perspectives and lessons with each other.

Speaking before the meeting, the Commonwealth Secretary-General said that the effectiveness of administration always remains a key factor in the competitive and comparative advantage of nations. Countries who are always worked with the vision and have brilliant and efficient governments are always placed to succeed.

The Secretary-General also applauded public servants across the Commonwealth, particularly those who are frontline staff, for the incredible work and dedication to the call of duty to deliver public services despite being facing several problems and restrictions. 

Patricia Scotland is the Commonwealth Secretary-General and also Dominica’s candidate for the election that will be held in Rwanda in June.
