Kuwait Times - - LOCAL -

KUWAIT: A lead­ing strate­gist said that the re­cent adop­tion of the 2016-2017 de­vel­op­ment plan ahead of the pro­jected bud­get was an un­prece­dented step, not­ing that the plan is dis­tin­guished “with a lot of new fea­tures nec­es­sary for con­tin­u­ous plan­ning de­vel­op­ment.” Suad Al-Awadh, the di­rec­tor of the Supreme Coun­cil for Plan­ning and De­vel­op­ment’s plans and pro­grams sec­tion, said in a state­ment yes­ter­day that the plan was pre­pared and en­dorsed ahead of the bud­get, “and that is un­prece­dented. It was also de­vel­oped so that it would be easy to fol­low.” The plan, in its new ap­proach, in­cludes chal­lenges that face each sec­tor and means to over­come them. Awadh, who in­di­cated that new meth­ods have been adopted for the 2017-2018 strat­egy, said projects are di­vided into three cat­e­gories; tac­ti­cal ven­tures “of high im­pact,” es­sen­tial projects such as build­ing in­fras­truc­tural fa­cil­i­ties and sec­tors namely roads and wa­ter net­works and op­er­a­tional ones that are re­lated to the depart­ment re­spon­si­ble for ven­ture’s ex­e­cu­tion. — KUNA
