Abstract: Recently, there have been several research studies focusing on the ethics of those who are responsible for public services and in different government positions. Ethics delivers greater responsibility between the citizen and the administration and helps to foster confidence such that citizens can be convinced the administration is working in favour of the public interest. Therefore, it is imperative that every action be made in accordance with ethical rules and principles. This article is focused on the importance of the ethical behaviour of public administration employees in relation to citizens; its aim is to demonstrate the ethical values that every administrator should have in order to establish a responsible, efficient, transparent and accountable administration so as to fulfil such duties towards citizens. The drafting of codes of ethics as well as respect for fundamental principles promotes the creation of a professional climate in the public servant-citizen relationship; this article seeks to highlight the importance of respect for such codes and principles extending to the highest level of professional employees.
