LACK OF POLITICAL WILL HINDERS KEY GOV’T PROJECTS: HOUSANAU
Key government projects have never taken off the ground because of a lack of political will, among other reasons.
National consultant on Commerce and Tourism Martin Housanau says a National Steering Committee identified key government projects never took off the ground because there was a lack of political will; a lack of project implementation capacity; a lack of commitment at the ministerial level; and insufficient logistical and budgetary support.
Mr Housanau says the first impediment is no longer an issue as the DCC Government has demonstrated a strong political towards the implementation of these projects.
Meanwhile, a project implementation unit will be set up under the Ministry of Commerce, Industries, Labor and Immigration to specifically deal with the implementation of all national projects and drawing up of project concepts and designs.
