Promote only the best


IT is a wise move by the government to open up top positions in the civil service to other sectors and disciplines ("Top civil service jobs to be opened to all" -- NST, Jan 24).

In the competitive world that we live in, we need the best people, regardless of race and religion, in order to reach greater heights.

Gone are the days when people working in the public service are promoted because of seniority.

The cream of the diplomatic rank would benefit if we only promote the best from the various sectors of industry in this country who are experts in their fields.
