Morocco’s Economy Showed Significant Resilience to International Crisis, PM

Morocco’s Economy Showed Significant Resilience to International Crisis, PM

Rabat – The Moroccan economy has fared well and has shown significant resilience vis-à-vis an exceptional international crisis thanks to the various measures taken by the government to support domestic demand, Prime Minister Abbas El Fassi said on Monday.

These incentives concern mainly the strengthening of investment and consumption, two essential drivers of the Moroccan economy which achieved a growth rate of 5.6% in 2008 and 5.3% in 2009, said El Fassi who presented Monday at the House of Representatives the results of the government action at the end of its mid-term mandate.

Thanks to its dynamic structural reforms, Morocco managed to lessen the impacts of the international crisis by carrying out an anticipatory policy and a strategic approach, El Fassi said, calling for further vigilance and mobilization to face the effects of this crisis which continues to threaten the national economy.

He noted that the strategy adopted by the government on the matter is based on energizing domestic demand and reinforcing the most affected export fields through the setting up of a Strategic Watch Committee.

According to the Premier, the government also pays particular attention to the post-crisis period through the diversification of exports in high-potential fields and the launch of a new generation of structural and sector-based strategies.

El Fassi said the public investment budget has doubled from 82 billion dirhams in 2007 to 163 billion dirhams in 2010 with the aim to speed up the process of structural projects, increase average consumption by 7% in 2008 and 2009 compared to 4% in 2007, preserve 100,000 job opportunities thanks to urgent measures, and decrease unemployment rate from 9.8% in 2007 to 9.1% in 2009.

He said the government seeks to vary growth sources through the launch of a new generation of integrated sector-based strategies such as “Green Morocco” in the field of agriculture, “Halieutis” in fisheries, the “National Charter for Industrial Development” (PNEI) “Digital Morocco 2013” and “Vision 2020” in the tourism industry.


Morocco :The reform of justice

Rabat – The reform of justice is one of the most important structural projects examined by the government, according to the six crucial reforms laid down by HM King Mohammed VI in his August speech, on the occasion of the revolution of the king and the people, Prime minister said on Monday.

El Fassi, who was presenting at the Lower House the results of government’s action at the end of its mid-term mandate, said several draft bills were formulated to institutionally reinforce the independence of justice. He added that facilitating legal procedures and guaranteeing fair trials would boost the citizens’ confidence in the country’s judicial system.

The justice sector’s budget increased to strengthen its capacities, mainly human resources and basic infrastructures, and spur its modernization aimed at upholding democracy, the sense of responsibility and the primacy of law, he noted.

Knowing that good governance is necessary for the country’s development, the government spared no effort to fight corruption, moralize public life, and bolster the transparency of economic management, El Fassi added.
