PM, Abdelaziz Djerad, orders to change aspect of grey areas before end of year

ALGIERS- Prime Minister, Abdelaziz Djerad, firmly instructed on Thursday walis (governors) and local directors to work towards urgent implementation of development projects in grey areas with a view to changing their aspect by the end of the current year.

Speaking at the close of the Government-Governors Meeting, Djerad stressed that the catch-up programmes in the grey areas, which are one of the pillars of the President's programme, were significantly behind schedule in their implementation.

Admitting that this delay can be justified by the repercussions of the Covid-19 pandemic and the country's economic problems, he nevertheless considered that this delay, "incidentally unacceptable," is also due to the bureaucratic logic of certain local managers who are hindering the government process and the President's programme in this area.

According to the figures presented on the second day of the meeting, which began on Wednesday, the number of operations completed under the grey areas development programmes amounts to 1,256 projects for a total of DZD15.95 billion in 1,014 grey areas and benefiting 716,000 citizens, out of a total of 11,815 projects registered for a total of DZD207 billion covering 9,502 zones.

In this connection, Djerad ordered the preparation of a precise timetable for development projects in grey areas and the periodic monitoring of their implementation, calling for monthly evaluations to achieve the objectives within the set deadlines.
