Program DescriptionThe Infrastructure and Energy Unit - DIE - supports the Department of National Planning implementing the necessary steps to develop the road and transport, telecommunications, mining, hydrocarbon, and energy sectors in coordination with the relevant agencies and units. In these sectors, the Unit provides guidance, participates and promotes the design, follow-up, control and evaluation in the implementation of policies, plans, programs, studies and investment projects together with related agencies.
