A member of the Parliamentary Transportation and Communications Committee, Zuhair Shahid Al-Fatlawi, warned, on Monday, against delaying the completion of important and stalled projects, especially transportation projects, due to the delay in approving the budget.
Al-Fatlawi said, in a press interview seen by “Takadum”, that “the delay in approving the budget negatively affects the completion of stalled and delayed projects and the new projects announced by the government.”
He added, "The delay will hit the investment sector and investors and will contribute to widespread unemployment among young people," noting that "there is a parliamentary movement to speed up the approval of the budget and improve the economy and investment in Iraq."
He pointed out that "many of the lagging and stalled projects have not been completed so far due to the delay in approving the budget, as well as the new projects announced by the government, including roads and bridges."
