36 projects included in revised ADP

JAGARAN CHAKMA

The National Economic Council (NEC) has included 36 new projects in the revised annual development programme (ADP) of the current fiscal year, aiming to implement them on the basis of public-private partnerships (PPP).
The government has allocated Tk. 2,000 crore for the PPP projects in the new budget for the current fiscal year. The NEC included the new projects in its last meeting, held on April 5, in which the revised ADP was approved.
The Finance Division had allocated Tk. 3,000 crore for PPP initiatives in the previous fiscal year.
Finance minister AMA Muhith, in his budget speech, said there has been little progress in the PPP initiatives during the last six years. Regarding the PPP projects, planning minister AHM Mustafa Kamal said it is not possible to implement them all by using only public funding. That is why the government has decided to implement some big projects under PPP, which is financially viable, and in which the private sector will come forward to invest.
However, the Planning Commission is yet to estimate how much money it will take to implement these projects.
Establishment of a Rural Development Academy (RDA) agriculture workshop and an applied research centre for development of the livelihoods of the rural people through improvement of the rural tourism model; development of the Dhaka-Chittagong expressway into a four-lane one and development of the Joydevpur-Devgram-Bhulta-Madampur bypass (Dhaka bypass) are among the projects.
