The staff of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs were yesterday reminded by Ratu Inoke Kubuabola to apply the 3Ps in their work – position, possession and passion.

The Foreign Affairs Minister made the comment while launching the ministry’s Annual Corporate Plan (ACP) yesterday at the ministry’s office in Nasese.

He said they should look at where they were and should move forward; take ownership of what they were doing and be passionate about them.

He said the NZ All Blacks used the 3Ps and this was a main factor in all their wins including the Wellington 7s last week.

Ratu Inoke said the launch looked to build on the success of last year.

In 2015, he said the ministry achieved optimal results with the limited resources they had.

“Our plan is to be even better this year,” he said.

He said the Government’s pursuit for enhanced public service delivery and increased return on investments set the tone for the ACP.

“Our focus is on improving the delivery of our services to all stakeholders in 2016.”

Last year’s staff excellence awards, he said, indicated the calibre of leaders and public servants they had in the ministry, but they could do better.

He reminded the staff that the pursuit of excellence must not be an 8am – 5pm occupation. “It must be a lifestyle.”

The Government, he said, was calling them to be better servants of the state and they should endeavour to heed the call.

He said the impressive economic growth figures in the last few years had underlined the importance of the ministry’s overseas mission’s roles in securing markets and technical assistance for improving local capacity.

In this light he said a rigorous evaluation of staffing objectives and competencies at the overseas missions was being undertaken.

He said the Foreign Policy Statements and the Ministry’s Strategic Plan 2016 – 2020 would provide the necessary guidance for the ministry.
