He also said that he would not spare anyone, including employees, who deliberately make mistakes, weaken or deviate from good intentions.
Explaining that work cannot be done when employees feel intimidated, the finance minister said that the results will be achieved by creating a favourable working environment with respect to qualifications and abilities.
“The ministry provides support, facilitation and encouragement to address difficulties and problems. If the goal is achieved, we respect it. If not, you should be punished,” he said.

“We are always ready to provide assistance.”
He also urged the employees to work hard to make the economy dynamic by meeting the challenges
