Lower House Speaker Holds Talks with IMF Delegation

The Speaker of the House of Representatives (Lower House), Rachid Talbi Alami, held talks via videoconference on Tuesday with a delegation from the International Monetary Fund (IMF), led by Roberto Cardarelli.

During the meeting, which is part of the annual consultations conducted by the IMF under Article IV of its statutes, Talbi Alami welcomed the relations established between Morocco and this institution, adding that the line of precaution and liquidity made available to Morocco reflects the partners' trust in the solidity of the Moroccan economy and the position of the Kingdom as a "hub of stability and security in the region."

On this occasion, the Speaker of the House of Representatives reviewed the major economic guidelines of Morocco and its strategic priorities for the post-covid period, particularly with regards to the development of infrastructure, the training of human capital, education, sustainable development, the transition to renewable energies, and the signing of partnerships continentally, regionally, and internationally, as well as strengthening the attractiveness of Morocco in terms of foreign direct investments and development of high-value-added sectors, such as automotive and aeronautics.

Tabli Alami recalled the preventive measures taken by the Kingdom under the leadership of HM King Mohammed VI, to mitigate the negative impact of COVID-19, stressing that "Morocco, which is considered as a model in the management of the pandemic both continentally and internationally, has developed a national strategy for the production of vaccines with the aim of strengthening its sanitary sovereignty and has made its successful experience in this area available to other countries on the African continent."
