They are the ministries of justice; energy, industry and mineral resources; finance; health; housing; hajj and umrah; labor and social development; commerce and investment; transport; telecommunication and IT; municipal and rural affairs; civil service; culture and information; environment, water and agriculture; and education.
All ministries are to stick to the budget allocated for them. The ministries must provide citizens with economic security and price control through smooth and consistent cooperation and clear vision.
The Ministry of Economy and Planning launched a program called “Qawam” to ensure that budget allocations are spent in the most effective way. The program aims at introducing quality spending and regulating the exchange and flow of money among ministries, said the source.
The Ministry of Municipal and Rural Affairs and those of transport and labor and social development are expected to review their system for levying fines.
The ministries of energy, industry and mineral resources, of finance, of economy and planning and commerce and investment are responsible for diversifying the national economy and increasing non-petroleum revenues, said the source.
