The announcement came as part of the government’s commitment to allocate funds more efficiently in the upcoming fiscal year.

Under the new policies and programs, projects with tangible outcomes and timely completion will receive priority funding, while those considered unproductive may face discontinuation. This strategic shift aims to ensure that taxpayer money is invested where it can yield the greatest benefit for the public.

Moreover, the government has outlined measures to enhance project monitoring and evaluation through the utilization of information technology. By leveraging digital tools, authorities aim to improve transparency and accountability in the implementation of development initiatives.
