Finance Minister AHM Mustafa Kamal presided over the meeting
The Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs on Wednesday approved a proposal in principle to set up 30 oxygen plants at different hospitals.
The Health Services Division of the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare will procure and set up the oxygen plants with the financial support of the Asian Development Bank (ADB).
However, the cost and other details of the plan were not disclosed as the proposal needs to be approved further by the Cabinet Committee on Public Purchase (CCPP).
The finance minister presided over the meetings of the two committees held consecutively.
“You will get details on the proposal when it comes to CCPP for approval next week”, said Finance Minister AHM Mustafa Kamal while briefing reporters on the outcomes of the committee meeting.
Meanwhile, the CCPOP at a meeting on Wednesday approved 10 procurement proposals including import of urea and construction of apartments for the government employees.
Four separate tender proposals of the Public Works Department (PWD) received nod of the committee to award contracts for the construction of a multi-storey apartment complex at Mirpur Paikpara for the government employees.
