Retired government officers can continue to contribute in building up the nation through the sharing of experience with the younger generation and the setting up of SMEs to contribute to the economy, as well as by strengthening the family institution and also maintaining the thirst for knowledge. These are the four areas that retired officers can look forward to, Borneo Bulletin reported.

This was highlighted by Awg Hj Nazmi bin Hj Mohammad, Permanent Secretary at the Ministry of Finance, in his remarks at the appreciation ceremony yesterday for retired staff under the Ministry of Finance (MoF).

“Retired officers can also be involved in volunteer work to pass on their wisdom to the younger generation,” he said.

“During retirement, there will also be more opportunity to conduct economic activities such as being involved in SMEs, which will contribute to the development of the country. This is in line with the government’s effort to encourage the growth of SMEs,” he added.

On behalf of the ministry, Awg Hj Nazmi bin Hj Mohamad also conveyed his appreciation to the retired staff for their hard work and contribution to the ministry.

A total of 28 officers and staff of the Ministry of Finance and departments under it who retired in 2011/2012 attended the appreciation ceremony at the ministry’s building.

Presenting the certificates to the recipients as guest of honour was Pehin Orang Kaya Laila Setia Dato Seri Setia Awg Hj Abd Rahman bin Hj Ibrahim, the Minister of Finance II at the Prime Minister’s Office.

The ceremony was a follow-up to the 19th Civil Service Day whereby His Royal Highness Prince Haji Al-Muhtadee Billah, the Crown Prince and Senior Minister at the Prime Minister’s Office, presented certificates to permanent secretaries in their respective ministries.
