UNDP Considers Development Plan

Foreign Minister, Hoshyar Zebari, discussed on May 13, 2014 with UNDP Country Manager, Adam Abdel Mawla, the programs and projects of the UN in Iraq.

The UN representative stressed that all development programs will be run, from the beginning of next month inside Iraq, not from abroad, confirming that the organization will open a big branch office in Basra by the end of this month, and aspires to open an office in the city of Karbala to cover the Mid Euphrates region, adding that the organization has an office in Erbil.

The two sides discussed the objectives of the development plan, which was set by the relevant ministries, for the period 2015-2019.

They also discussed the relations between Iraq and the organization and the government’s keenness to provide the best means and facilities for the organization’s work to support national development projects.
