It links the NEP recommendations with 297 “tasks”, as well as the responsible agencies, the schedules and 304 results of these tasks.

The statement goes on to say: “An attempt has also been made to offer activities in such a way that they build on the existing structure and do not create new structures. Therefore, SARTHAQ cares about the spirit and intent of the directive and should be implemented gradually. “
