Heads of agencies affiliated to the Ministry of Infrastructure yesterday signed performance contracts committing to fulfil specific targets in the infrastructure sector this fiscal year.
The 2017/18 performance contracts were developed in line with the long term national programmess such as Vision 2020, EDPRS II, and other national priorities.
The event involved Heads of Ministry’s affiliated agencies including RwandAir, Rwanda Housing Authority, Rwanda Energy Group, Rwanda Civil Aviation Authority, Rwanda Transport Development Agency and heads of departments at the ministry.
The new performance contracts were also built on 2016/17 key achievements of the Ministry of Infrastructure across four sectors: Transport, Energy, Water & Sanitation and Urbanisation & human settlement.
During the signing ceremony, the Minister for Infrastructure, James Musoni called upon the entire department heads responsible to work hard and use the available resources in order to meet the set targets for the good of the citizens.
“We should work hard to see that all the services that citizens are lacking in all sectors be it housing, transport, water and energy are delivered by meeting the targets set in 2017-2018 contracts,” said Musoni.
The agencies will initiate programmes to develop, rehabilitate and maintain an efficient and integrated infrastructure development including sustainable roads, better aviation services, sustainable power generation, affordable shelter and urbanisation, adequate water and sanitation facilities, railways networks and water transportation which will contribute towards economic development and regional integration.
