Openness Tracker


Information was obtained through the 'Progress of development projects and programmes as at 31st March 2018' Report published online by the Department of Project Management and Monitoring. However the information was insufficient to assess progress for the full period.

Progress Tracker


Some activities under the promise have been initiated. However, information on progress was only available for the first three months and was behind the target set for this time period. Based on the information, progress as at 31 March 2018 was 8%, compared to a target of 10%. Since progress could not be determined for the full period of assessment (January-June 2018), progress is assumed to be lagging.
