The decree was made available to all the ministries and government agencies through the presidential newsletter.

The implementation of the decree will be supervised by the Secretariat of the Council of Ministers, according to the President.

“Government must avoid additional costs such as stationery, maintenance, logistics, and other basic needs,” said President Karzai.

With the implementation of this decree, foreign trips of the ministry officials would also be limited.
