ISLAMABAD: The United Nations' Public Service Day will be celebrated on June 23 to celebrate the value and virtue of service to the community.

The day recognizes that democracy and successful governance are built on the foundation of a competent civil service.

The United Nations' (UN) holds a Public Service Awards ceremony each year. It rewards the creative achievements and contributions of public service institutions worldwide.

This year the United Nations Public Service Forum, Day and Awards Ceremony will take place in Manama, the Kingdom of Bahrain, from 24 to 27 June 2013 with the theme "Transformative e-Government and Innovation: Creating a Better Future for All".

The United Nations Public Service Award rewards the creative achievements and contributions of public service institutions that lead to a more effective and responsive public administration in countries worldwide.

On December 20, 2002, the United Nations General Assembly designated June 23 of each year as United Nations Public Service Day (resolution 57/277).

It encouraged member states to organize special events on that day to highlight the contribution of public service in the development process.

"On the annual observance of Public Service Day, we honour those who accept the responsibilities of service to humanity and who contribute to excellence and innovation in public service institutions," says Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon in a statement on UN Public Service Day.
