Baghdad: Omar Abdul Latif
The Ministry of Planning announced that the coming year will witness the launch of productive projects and the strengthening of the reconstruction movement in the governorates.
The Director-General of the Department of Regional and Local Development in the Ministry, Dr. Muhammad Mohsen Al-Sayed, said in an interview: “In most governorates, the reconstruction and construction movement began according to their respective allocations from the budget law for this year 2021,” noting that “any amount, no matter its value, is spent to develop a village or a village. On the one hand, it contributes to raising the level of development in it, providing job opportunities and reducing immigration, which is better than the amounts granted to the center of the capital, and this is what the ministry aims for in achieving balanced development, and reducing spatial development between major cities and governorates, especially the poorest.”
He added that "there is a tendency to pay attention to deprived areas through the (Social Fund for Development) project by establishing projects in cooperation with the people, such as paving roads and establishing schools or some small productive facilities to provide them with job opportunities."
Al-Sayed added that “financial allocations are distributed among the governorates according to their population sizes and the degree of deprivation,” noting that “some cities will witness the distribution of land among their citizens, in addition to the soft loans that contribute to strengthening the reconstruction movement in the governorates.”
He explained that "the past two years have witnessed reluctance due to the conditions of the (Corona) pandemic, while the next year will witness a more launch in productive projects in the private sector, because the change in the dollar exchange rate contributed to stimulating some local productive sectors."
