10MP projects to be announced next month — Nor Mohamed

The list of 10th Malaysia Plan projects will be revealed after Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak tables the 2011 budget next month, Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Tan Sri Nor Mohamed Yakcop said today.

However, only projects for implementation in 2011 and 2012 of the five-year plan (2011-2015) would be announced, he added.

“We will announce the list for every two years and not for the whole five years as was done previously,” he told reporters when asked to comment on a statement by Bukit Bendera Member of Parliament Liew Chin Tong that the 10MP projects had yet to be announced when they should have been revealed last month.

There was no delay in the announcement as claimed, Nor Mohamed said after presenting Aidilfitri aid in his Tasek Gelugor parliamentary constituency.

Najib had said when tabling the 10MP in June that programmes and projects would be implemented on a rolling plan basis, with the allocation for programmes and projects provided on a two-year basis beginning 2011-2012.

He had said that this allowed commitment to be made based on the financial position of the government and provided flexibility to respond to new priorities and changes in the global and domestic economic environment.
