Upon approval by the president, the ANDS was presented based on 15 years development goals and in the framework of Poverty Reduction Strategy Paper to the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund, and the international community and endorsed in June, 2008.

The Ministry of Economy was given the responsibility to monitor and evaluate the implementation of the ANDS by indicators and milestones. The Ministry of Economy is the main coordination body for social and economic policies and is to analyze data and progress measured by indicators provided by line ministries and the Central Statistics Organization (CSO).
