Disbursement of public investment capital must be strengthened. Resources from all economic and social sectors must be mobilized and used efficiently. Industries, sectors, businesses, and workers severely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic must be supported. Favorable conditions must be created for enterprises and people to develop production, business and domestic market, and promote start-ups and innovation.
