Summary
Public administration - the cornerstone of governments' work- plays an essential and critical role in improving people’s lives.

On 20 December 2002, the General Assembly designated 23 June as Public Service Day by adopting resolution 57/277.

Every year June 23rd is celebrated as the United Nations Public Service Day. This day celebrates the value and virtue of public service to the community. It also highlights the "contribution of public service in the development process." The Public Service Day also recognises public servants' work and encourages the young generation to pursue careers in the public sector.

To recognise the work of public service, the United Nations established the UN Public Service Day and the UN Public Service Awards (UNPSA) programme in 2003. "The UNPSA aims to promote and reward innovation and excellence in public services by recognizing the creative achievements and contributions of public institutions that lead to a more effective and responsive public administration in countries worldwide in support of sustainable development," UN said.
