During the meeting, Al-Sudani stressed a number of points and axes, the most important of which is his visit to Diwaniyah Governorate, which is an affirmation of the government's message in adopting its priorities announced in the ministerial curriculum, and will be included in the government program, and therefore is the government's action plan for this period.

He added that "our priorities are clear, and they stem from diagnosing the most important problems and obstacles facing our people in all governorates, which have led to an increase in the suffering of citizens at various living and service standards."

"This accompanies the government's vision towards economic reform, which must be and cannot be delayed in light of the deterioration and ineffectiveness of the various sectors driving the economy, such as industry, agriculture and tourism, we cannot continue the policy of relying on oil as a major source of the budget," he said.

Al-Sudani stressed that "the fight against administrative and financial corruption is a priority for us, because of this phenomenon of a serious threat to all plans, programs and policies implemented by any government, whether the federal government or local governments."

"In accordance with this vision, we found it appropriate to start from Diwaniyah, which leads the provinces in poverty and unemployment, and in the weakness of economic activity at various levels, which has greatly affected the service and living conditions of all the people of the province," he said.

"This province has given sacrifices and sacrifices to the martyrs and wounded in various stations that have passed through the country, the latest of which was the war on ISIS," al-Sudani said. Put the martyrs before you in every joint, in every movement and position and in every decision, a nation that does not recognize or immortalize its martyrs, a nation that is not alive."

He continued that "the visit to Diwaniyah province is not a quick visit within the prime minister's program, all our visits are working visits, in which we review problems, develop solutions, listen if there are initiatives, support them, and come up with a result of recommendations."

"There is a team that follows up on the recommendations, and on the basis of follow-up, all stakeholders are evaluated, starting with the governor and ending with managers, heads of administrative units and all departments," he said.

He continued: "We have lagging projects on the service side, and the ministers and undersecretaries present must stand on these projects, follow up on the reality of the work of the departments, and put solutions and go to the allocations of the province to see where they were allocated, and the sectors benefiting from them."
He pointed out that "first of all, we must arrange priorities, and choose the project that achieves the greatest service and benefit to the citizen, especially when the work is related to the budget of the province, which is directed to serve the people of the province first, through the provision of basic services."

Al-Sudani stressed that "the government took the initiative urgently, to form the engineering and service effort, and this effort is in the service of all provinces, it is true that we started in Baghdad, but we will go to the provinces, so we are looking for priority projects."

He continued: "We hear about the ways of death, which took many of our citizens in traffic accidents, and this is a situation that must end, and the existence of this term ends, these projects can be a priority, or any projects that you find serve the largest segment of citizens."

He added that "the issue of social protection is a priority, as the state pays attention to this program, according to an internationally approved scientific methodology that contributes to poverty alleviation, not only living income, but we target multidimensional poverty, which includes education, health and housing services."

"Every governor and every governorate must draw their service projects according to the poverty map provided to you by the Ministry of Planning," he said. "Today we are concerned with directing the budget at the provincial level to infrastructure projects."

Muhammad Salih added: "There are other complementary laws that should be activated related to the protection of the local product and the protection of the consumer, all of which are almost suspended due to commercial liberalism, poor quality control measures, and penetration of the country's customs wall from outlets through which goods flow outside the country's customs and commercial system controls."
