The President also underlined that detailed works are essential on the ground to ensure the implementation. Therefore, he ordered his administration to form a supervisory team so that the implementation on the ground complies with the existing policies.
“Indeed, we cannot only work on a macro level. We cannot. Instead, we must have a team, each ministry/institution must assign a team to oversee the implementation on the ground.
