The Islamic Development Bank (IsDB) Group has scaled up its presence and support towards Indonesia through a Technical Assistance (TA) facility to Support the Development of Transport PPPs in the Member Country. IsDB would be providing a grant to the Ministry of Transport
(MoT), which will be utilized to build the capacity of the MOT in its efforts to develop and to implement transport sector PPP projects.
The scope of this assistance will consist of activities related to (i) capacity development of MOT; (ii) preparation of a toolkit/guidelines for PPP project screening and selection; and (iii) preparation of an Outline Business Case (pre-feasibility) for one PPP transport project.
The IsDB has a long history of cooperation with the Government of Indonesia, with a strong footprint in supporting the education sector, especially the upgrade and enhancement of tertiary education institutes. Some of these University projects include important pillars devoted to Medical Education, Research, and Treatment infrastructure. These improved facilities are now playing an important role in Indonesia’s COVID-19 response activities.
The title seems both mysterious and exciting! To cut the reader’s confusion short, the title is related to the Saudi Project for the Utilisation of Hajj Meat.

Distribution started with the poor in the Haram area of Makkah.
