The Government will unleash all its efforts and capacities to promote cooperation and integration ensuring development is channelled to each governorate. The governorates will enhance their preparedness for investment and develop their local role based on their comparative advantage in a manner that creates models of development. This will be followed by a number of strategic projects that the Government will implement within its five-year plans, thus integrating the development movement, to include all parts of our dear country.”
The launch of The National Initiative for the Development of Local Governance comes in line with the royal directives of His Majesty the Sultan and His Majesty’s interest in the sustainable development of the governorates, implemented in cooperation with international experts, and designed to be closely linked to local legislative frameworks and international best practices. The initiative will be implemented gradually, starting with Governors and then Walis.
