The government seemed successful to some extent to leave an impression that it was delivering to live up with the public expectation. The federal, state and local levels said that policies and programs aimed at fulfilling people’s aspirations of development and prosperity were prepared and implemented through the operation of federalism. The governments at these levels introduced new budget and programs paying due priority to development of physical infrastructure, education, health, and employment.
