The annual Public Service Week, from 2 to 8 July 2018, is observed by 145,000 public servants in 16 ministries and more than 60 statutory boards. The annual event is held to build a greater appreciation and pride for the work of the Public Service, inspire public officers to live out the Public Service values, and increase cohesion amongst public officers. This year's theme, "One Public Service: Stepping Up Transformation" highlights the need for Public Sector Transformation and the role that each officer can play in building a future-ready Public Service.
As part of the annual Public Service Week, about 500 officers were invited for a reception on 3 July 2018, hosted by President Halimah Yacob at the Istana to recognise their contributions to the civil service. Representing AGO in this year’s reception was DD Peck Ee, who shared that she was privileged and honoured to attend the tea reception and interact with the President, Minister-in-charge of the Public Service Mr Chan Chun Sing, and officers from other agencies.
