The National Assembly's Financial and Economic Affairs Committee discussed here on Sunday with Minister of Social Affairs and Minister of State for Planning and Development Hind Al-Sabeeh and representatives of State Audit Bureau the Development Plan for the fiscal years 2015-2016/2019-2020.
They also considered obstacles that the previous plan faced and the ways of avoiding them in the next one, Faisal Al-Shaya, the committee's chairman, said in a statement to reporters following the meeting, adding that the Supreme Council for Planning and Development (SCPD) formed a committee on this matter.
A large number of projects were not carried out in the previous development plan, he regretted, noting that the meeting consequently focused on the most important schemes.
He pointed out that there is a plan for personnel training and cutting development projects to 600 instead of 1,200, indicating the previous plan included insignificant schemes.
Al-Shaya noted that a timeframe would be set for implementing development projects, expecting some of these projects will be executed in January and February 2015.
