6 thousand projects are underway20 hours ago[/size]
Today, Monday, the Ministry of Planning ruled out the inclusion of new projects in the current 2022 budget, indicating that there are 6,000 projects under implementation.
Ministry spokesman Abdul-Zahra Al-Hindawi said, "Inclusion of new projects in the 2022 budget will not be easy in light of the presence of a large number of ongoing projects, as it is not logical to have projects with completion rates and go to include new projects," noting that "the focus will be On the continuation of the implementation of existing projects that are under implementation and ensuring their implementation.
He added that "the recovery of oil prices and the presence of good revenues will cover the deficit, and as a result, it will reflect positively on the investment side in ensuring the implementation of government investment projects, whether they are implemented by ministries or by local governments in the governorates."
Al-Hindawi pointed out that "there are a large number of projects under implementation, of which there are no less than 6,000 projects," noting that "these projects include many sectors of development, whether related to services, infrastructure and strategic projects, as well as some of them within an investment program for ministries and others within Regional Development Program for the Governorates.
He stressed that "these projects are important and represent an important value for development and the economy, as they contribute to moving the wheel of development by providing job opportunities and by providing services to citizens."
The Ministry of Planning had suspended the implementation of projects within the 2020 budget after the drop in oil prices, so prices would rise again in 2021.
