The Federal Government on Tuesday inaugurated a technical working group for the development of the first operational plan for the National Integrated Infrastructure Masterplan.

The TWG, with membership drawn from the relevant agencies of government, academia and private sector, is to work on the first operational plan, which is expected to cover the 2017 to 2020 fiscal periods.

The committee was inaugurated by the Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Budget and National Planning, Fatima Mede, at the headquarters of the ministry in Abuja.

The NIIMP, which is being coordinated by the ministry, was approved by the Federal Executive Council in September 2014 as a blueprint for accelerated infrastructure development of the country over a period of 29 years from 2014 to 2043.
