A sense of duty and honor

My friend works as a civil servant in Hong Kong. They get a good salary but do not get a bonus to "motivate" them towards certain targets.


She explained that the bonus may get the bad behavior. The public servant is required to carry out the expected duty without the bonus to "motivate" them,

I agree with the approach adopted in Hong Kong.

I disagree with the bonus that is given to civil servants in Singapore based on the state of the economy or other reasons.

I like our civil servants to be paid well, like in Hong Kong, but there should not be motivated by bonuses. We have to develop a sense of duty and honor.
