Vice President U Myint Swe was at the opening ceremony of the Civil Service Academy that provides basic training for cadets and post-graduate diploma management courses for civil servants held at the Central Institute of Civil Service, Upper Myanmar in Pyin Oo Lwin Township, Mandalay Region yesterday morning at 8am yesterday and opened a veil revealing the signboard of a commemorative inscribed stone by pressing a button.
At the ceremony, Union Ministers Dr Myo Thein Gyi and Dr Myint Htwe, Dr Win Thein, member of Union Civil Service Board, Mandalay Region Cabinet’s Chief Minister Dr Zaw Myint Maung and U Aung Tin Soe, rector of the institute cut a ceremonial ribbon in front of the signboard of the academy.
The Vice President then sprinkled scented water on the inscribed signboard.
“If we are required to make political and economic reforms we need to change the administration sector, which is needed to implement those changes. In doing so, it is important to amend laws, rules and procedures and at the same time attitudes and capacities of civil servants play an important role. In any sector—government or private, in a country, human resources are very important in implementing any kind of sectors including management and service,” the Vice President said in his address yesterday.
He stressed the need for the study of the latest information innovations as well as English proficiency.
“At present, the Civil Service Academy has two more subjects of English and Information Technology which are urgently needed for all civil service personnel to master in these days. They will be added to 5 conventional subjects—management, economics, social science, political science and law, becoming 7 in all now,” he said.
The Vice President said the training that students will receive at the Civil Service Academy will not only qualify them to work as civil servants, but will also prepare them for a possible future as leaders of Myanmar.
“I want to say that you are urged to become leaders who are able to carry out the national tasks in the future, when a public-oriented administration system will be introduced in the country, and knowledge and experiences gained from the training are needed to be effectively used for the development of the country.”
Afterward, the VP and party viewed a video showing arrangements for opening the CSI. The Vice President and party then posed for photos together with guests.—Myanmar News Agency
