GHAZNI CITY (PANinfo-icon): Funds amounting to $20 million (986.4 million afs) have been set aside for development projects to be completed next year in southern Ghazni province, officials said on Saturday.  

Governor Musa Khan Akbarzada told a meeting in Ghazni City, the provincial capital, that some of the projects would be launched in a month.

“One mega project is the construction of the Islamic Cultural Centre, which is estimated to cost almost $ 17 million,” the governor said, adding the Ministry of Finance had allocated $10 million for the project in compliance with a presidential order.

Akbarzada informed $10 million had been pledged in assistance by the provincial reconstructioninfo-icon teams (PRTs) of the US and Poland for next year’s development schemes. He said 30 projects would be executed with support from the teams.

Chabielski, the Polish PRTinfo-icon deputy head, said they would provide $7 million for 15 development projects in the province. Poland has spent $18 million on different projects between 2008 and 2011, he recalled.

The gathering decided that a company should be awarded only one contract for a project at a time in order to ensure work quality.
