The Minister for National Planning Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum says consultations on the National Development plan continues around the country.
Speaking on FBC’s 4 the record program last night Sayed-Khaiyum said during the meetings the government officials are able to explain how development is prioritized to match the needs to the people in the area.
“In the development plan we also hope to identify specific developments. So we want to be able to project and you could say that – you know the population of Ba in 7 years time will be lot bigger than what it is now – so if that is a case that what are the things we need to provide in terms of services and infrastructure to ensure when the population grows people are able to excess services that they normally would excess.”
Sayed-Khaiyum says the 5-year-plan is more for short and medium term while a 20-year-plan is more of an outlook as to where we want to be in 20-years time.
The draft National Development Plan will be made available to the public for their say.
