The Minister of State for Finance, Budget and National Planning, Clem Agba, says increased investment in infrastructure is crucial to economic development.

He said this in Abuja yesterday at the inaugural meeting of the Technical Working Group (TWG) of the National Council.

He said the government was committed to addressing the infrastructure gaps across the country by ensuring consistent budgetary allocations for capital projects at 30 per cent.

According to him, the TWG is expected to provide policy guidance to the council towards driving sustainable implementation of the National Integrated Infrastructure Master Plan.
