HM the King : New Development Model to Become Cornerstone for Establishment of Social Contract in Which all Stakeholders are Involved

HM King Mohammed VI said Tuesday that the proposed development model should become the cornerstone for the establishment of a new social contract in which all stakeholders will be involved.

"I look forward to seeing the proposed development model become the cornerstone for the establishment of a new social contract in which all stakeholders will be involved: the state and its institutions as well as the driving forces of the nation, namely the private sector, political parties, trade unions, civil society organizations and the citizens," the Sovereign pointed out in a speech on the occasion of the 66th anniversary of the Revolution of the King and the People.

HM the King said that the new development model will serve as the backbone of the new phase, "whose guidelines I set out in the last State of the Nation Address: a phase whose key features will be accountability and a comprehensive take-off."

The Moroccan citizen is the heart of the development process, the Sovereign added, noting that an inclusive, participatory approach is necessary when addressing the major issues of the nation to make sure all key stakeholders are actively involved.

"It is the same objective I seek to achieve through the creation of the ad-hoc committee for the development model, which I will soon ask to tackle this crucial issue," the monarch added, noting that the committee’s mission will be threefold: remedial, proactive and forward-looking; the goal is to look to the future with great confidence.

The committee will be expected to propose appropriate implementation and monitoring mechanisms, in addition to measures to make sure Moroccans will fully embrace the proposed model and collectively seek to ensure its success, HM the King said.

The purpose of revamping the development model and of the projects and programs launched is to ensure Morocco’s advancement, improve the citizens’ living conditions and reduce social and regional disparities, the Sovereign pointed out.
