Urge for 100% implementation of the annual performance agreement. State Minister for Housing and Public Works Sharif Ahmed said he would like to see 100 percent implementation of the Annual Performance Agreement (APA).

He was speaking as the chief guest at the signing ceremony of the Annual Performance Agreement (APA) between the ministry and various departments and agencies under it at the conference room of the Ministry of Housing and Public Works at the Secretariat on Wednesday (June 30) afternoon.

He said the present government is a people-friendly government. Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, through her capable and strong leadership, has taken the country forward at a breakneck pace. In the last century, the country has achieved unprecedented development and progress in all economic and social indicators. The Ministry of Housing and Public Works is working tirelessly to continue this development and progress.

The Ministry of Housing and Public Works carries out all these works through twelve departments/agencies. So the work of the departments/agencies is the work of the ministry. The success of the ministry depends on its success. If the departments perform 100% of the work, it appears that 100% of the work of the ministry has been completed.

Therefore, as the State Minister of the Ministry, I would like to see 100% implementation of the annual performance agreement of each department/agency. In case of its failure or deviation, the responsibility should be taken by the head of the concerned department.

The State Minister further said, “Under the leadership of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, we are working towards building a developed and prosperous Bangladesh by 2041.” Everyone must play their part in fulfilling that goal.

Addressing the heads of the organizations, the state minister said, “Your success is the success of the government.” Your failure is the failure of the government. We do not want to see any failure of the government led by Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina. We want to show that we have implemented all the programs of the Prime Minister with 100% success.

The state minister reminded the heads of the agencies about the terms of the agreement and said, “The terms of the agreement have been determined on your advice according to your ability and capacity.” Nothing was forced. So no one else will take responsibility for its failure.

Twelve departments/agencies under the Ministry of Housing and Public Works will enter into an agreement with the Ministry of Housing Heads through an annual performance agreement on all the tasks to be performed in the fiscal year 2021-2022.
