As the Premier Public Service of Sri Lanka we have a lot of responsibilities on our shoulders. We must realize now that we are in the 21 century, and the General Public always expects a better service from us. It is for this reason that we have to think positively and change the public sector systems and procedures according to the new thinking and give our best to the nation. Scientists have explained that the knowledge doubles in every five years. So think back about your knowledge and see whether it has doubled or not in the last five years. Also think about the service which you rendered these years and try to be more innovative and creative. It will be more helpful to the general public and plan to give your maximum. SASA will always be there with you to make your journey a Success!
