This plan lays the foundation of the Ministry’s direction for the period 2016-2019. I have no doubt that the efforts and cooperation that has inspired the accomplishment of this document is our strength to fulfil what we as a Ministry have transpired to achieve over the next 4 years.
The Planning and Statistics Unit is primarily responsible for economic planning, analysis, policy advice, and project planning and management for the Ministry. The Unit is also supposed to play and maintain its dual role of collecting, compilation and maintaining a robust data system for the Ministry. This dual role has not been an easy responsibility for the Unit for quite some time as it requires a great deal of effort and resources in order to have a full fledge data system in place.
