MPO Revival DecreeMPO Revival Decree

President Hassan Rouhani ordered on Saturday the implementation of the decision earlier made by the Supreme Administrative Council to revive the Management and Planning Organization (MPO) with a new organizational structure. The planning body, formerly known as the Plan and Budget Organization, was dissolved in 2007 following a direct order from the former president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. The body was in charge of evaluating the country’s resources and preparing medium and long-term development plans as well as the annual budget. At present, the vice presidency office for strategic planning and supervision plays the MPO’s role.
