Government Ministries

There are around 15 government ministries in Kiribati.  Each is headed by a political appointee called the minister and a chief civil servant called the chief secretary. Responsibility for public service recruitment and management is shared between the Public Service Office (charged with human resource management, planning and development), the Public Service Commission (approves public service appointments and monitors discipline) and individual line ministries (responsibilities for recruitment, promotions, discipline and removal of public servants). Examples of government ministries include the Ministry of Commerce, Industry and Cooperatives; the Ministry of Environment, Lands and Agricultural Development; and the Ministry of Finance and Economic Development.
