Re-organization of Ministries

The Ministry of Economic Trade and Development has been renamed the Ministry of Economy and Budget Planning and will take over budget planning from the Ministry of Finance. It also assumes responsibility for establishing a more favorable investment climate from the Ministry of Industry and New Technology and, from the Ministry of Internal Affairs, responsibility for formation of public policy on migration.


Several agencies have been set up to support the Ministries to further improve the system of government in the country. 
In particular, the Agency for Construction, Housing and Community Services will be attached to the newly formed Ministry of Regional Development and the Nuclear Energy Agency will support the Ministry of Industry and Trade.
The Ministry of Environment Protection has been made responsible for implementing and overseeing the development of a “green economy”.
The Ministry also takes over responsibility for other functions, including the management of natural resources, the elaboration of a state policy for water management and development of fisheries as well as management of solid waste and development of a state policy on renewable energy resources.
