KUWAIT, Feb 13 (KUNA) -- The contracts being sealed by the government with project developers constitute the practical translation of the government approach to the enforcement of the state development plan, deputy chairman of the 'Fatwa" (Legal Advice) and Legislation Dept Faisal Al-Sar'awi said Sunday.
"The contracts are the real indicator gauging the performance of the government and the extent of the progress towards targets of the development plan," Al-Sar'awi, also chairman of the higher follow-up committee on contracts, told KUNA.
"The follow-up committee was formed by Deputy Prime Minister for Economic Affairs, Minister of State for Development Affairs and Minister of State for Housing Affairs Sheikh Ahmad Al-Fahad Al-Ahmad Al-Sabah; it aims to review the contracts in relation to the laws and decrees of the state and develop recommendations on the necessary measures," he noted.
The committee managed to remove a number of obstacles facing the implementation of key projects and dovetail the contracts with the relevant legislations including the tenders law in coordination with the concerned state departments.
It reviewed all development-related laws and decrees which have been approved since 1990 in a bid to merge them into a single legislation. It is working hard to find suitable solutions to the red tape problems with a view to realizing the targets of the development plan at an early date, Al-Sar'awi affirmed.
The recommendations of the committee including the draft single law will be tabled to Sheikh Ahmad Al-Fahad as a prelude to referring them to the cabinet and then to the National Assembly. When approved, the new legislation will introduce a radical change in the mechanism of contracting and remove the legacy of bureaucracy, he affirmed. (end) hq.rf.gb KUNA 131628 Feb 11NNNN
