PBBM to gov't execs: 'Reinvent bureaucracy, back socioeconomic plan'

MANILA -- President Ferdinand R. Marcos Jr. urged Tuesday the country's career executive service officers and eligibles to help his administration "reinvent bureaucracy" and back the government's 8-Point Socioeconomic Agenda aimed at ushering the country toward development.

"Let us reinvent ourselves and reinvent the bureaucracy... The welfare of the people and the improvement of our lives is of utmost importance," President Marcos said during the 49th Founding Anniversary of the Career Executive Service Board (CESB) and 2022 Career Executive Service Lifelong Learning for Leadership Congress.

As the country takes "the daunting task ahead of us," Marcos urged officials to actively take part in pursuing the administration's 8-Point Socioeconomic Agenda, which involves "policies that promote social justice, ensure food security, accelerate progress, protect our environment and address climate change."

"Remember that we are here not for our own gain. We are here to bring forth a government that provides for the needs of the people," the chief executive said.

Most importantly, Marcos asked them to remain vigilant against corruption and other acts that diminish public trust.

"I am optimistic our CESOs and CESEs, together with their colleagues, will lead by example and inspire our fellow civil servants to be dedicated, able, fearless, and honest in serving our people," Marcos said.

At the same time, the President told them to remain united in strengthening the institutional capacity of the CESB as the government pursues much-needed reforms and continues to implement the effective programs that the administration has begun.

Marcos also made an assurance of his administration's strong commitment to enhancing the working conditions, social growth and professional advancement of all career executive officials.

The President also vowed to carry out a review of Memorandum Circular No. 3, series of 2022, affecting the CESB.

"Let me assure our Career Executive Service Board and the affected CESEs occupying third-level positions in the government that the Office of the President is going to review the said memorandum, and look into the other hurdles faced by many CESEs in obtaining CES eligibility," Marcos said.

The President challenged the attendees to learn from each other and utilize the invaluable learnings and best practices highlighted in the congress towards effecting change.
