On 12th December 2013 coinciding with an auspicious day, the Secretary General of the National Council in a simple tendrel ceremony gave away the Royal Civil Service Award medals to the civil servants working in the secretariat along with a certificate each signed by His Majesty the King in person. The awards were given in recognition of their clear and dedicated services to the nation for more than ten years. There were six bronze, 4 silver and two gold (including life time) medal recipients this year.
On this most happy occasion, the National Council Secretariat wish to congratulate the award recipients and to pay tribute to His Majesty the King for his love, compassion and benevolent reign. We also take this opportunity to re-dedicate ourselves to the service of the Tsa-Wa-Sum.
