Progress Tracker


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