In the words of Tekura Moeka'a, OPSC HR Advisor, "As the Cook Islands Public Service journeys through its voyage to deliver on the vision of 'Public Service of Excellence', it is important that (we) the Public Servants are onboard to ensure that our Public Sector remains relevant and response by delivering quality goods and services through effective leadership and governance.
