Minister of Planning Khaled Battal Al-Najm announced today, Tuesday, that there are 6,250 projects under construction, while stressing that "the delay in completing projects has led to a failure to provide services to citizens."

Al-Najm said during his hosting of the House of Representatives, which was followed by the Iraqi News Agency (INA), that "there are 6250 projects under construction that need to provide 126 trillion dinars to complete them."

He added that "the large number of projects caused the failure to include any new project in the new budget law."

He pointed out that "the delay in completing the projects has led to the failure to provide services to citizens, including the presence of 42 uncompleted residential complexes that need to be accurately recounted to begin their completion, as well as the need to develop a real reform plan to address the delay in implementing projects."
