decisions as necessary on the special projects expeditiously and implement
them as speedily as possible. Hence, he said, efforts should be made to try to
accomplish tasks submitted to the committee without delay. He spoke of the
need to implement the projects during the prescribed period and called for
efforts to see that the projects are implemented earlier than schedule. The
nation will benefit earlier if the projects are implemented sooner, he noted,
adding costs will then be reduced. All should always keep in mind that the
work is being done in national and public interest, he said. He spoke of the
need to ask for as less funds as possible for the projects. He called on the

them most efficiently.
