Satellite Technology should be used to monitor public sector development projects, says Minister for Planning and Development Asad Umar.
Minister for Planning and Development Asad Umar has stressed the need to utilize satellite technology for monitoring and evolution of public sector development projects, in order to ensure efficiency and timely completion of the projects.
He expressed these views during a briefing in Islamabad about the use of satellite technology to support implementation of Public Sector Development Programme projects.
Asad Umar said the weak monitoring and evaluation system in Planning Commission always results in delay and inefficiency in public sector development projects’ implementation, causing massive overrun, increase in cost, and wastage of taxpayers’ money.
