The approval came at the Ecnec weekly meeting held at the NEC conference room on Tuesday  with Ecnec Chairperson and Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina in the chair.

“Today, we placed 10 project proposals at the meeting from seven ministries, and all the 10 projects were approved,” said Planning Minister MA Mannan while briefing reporters after the meeting.
