CAIRO – 11 May 2022: A governorate competitiveness index has been launched to monitor the efficacy of economic policies in every governorate, contributing to comprehensive development and integration at the national level, according to Minister of Planning Hala al-Said.
The minister, who was explaining the 2022/2023 sustainable development plan to the House of Representatives on Monday, was referring to education, health, housing, training, and public facilities.
In a pioneering step, the ministry produced 27 reports in cooperation with the UNFPA to detect progress in all 27 governorates of Egypt in terms of sustainable development and determine the developmental gaps in each one. This will result in a customized program for every governorate, according to Said.
Some 51 percent of government investments are directed at the human capital and improving the quality of Egyptians’ lives, Said told the parliament.
The 2022/2023 plan is a continuation to the 2030 Vision and the national economic reform program that kicked off in 2016, Said said, adding that it also includes pressing issues such as overpopulation, water scarcity, climate change, and financial inclusion.
