2014 constitution underlines economic, social rights of citizens — Minister – Egypttoday

CAIRO, July 19 (MENA) - Planning Minister Hala el Saeid said Sunday that the 2014 constitution clearly indicates economic and social rights of citizens that should be realized by the government.





Addressing a parliamentary session to review a bill on State planning, Saeid told MPs the 2014 constitution focuses on the decentralization of services provided by the different local bodies and NGOs.

The government is keen on entrenching sustainable development goals to be able to achieve "inclusive growth and balanced regional development“, which, Saeid stressed, is a major pillar of the Egypt 2030 vision.

The bill suggests establishing a supreme council of planning and sustainable development to be chaired by the Egyptian president with the aim to coordinate efforts among the different bodies concerned to implement the Egypt 2030 vision.
