Morocco Awaited for Intellectual Contribution in Carrying Out AU's Reform, Official

Morocco is awaited for its vision for Africa and intellectual contribution for the implementation of the African Union's reform, said economy and finance minister Mohamed Boussaid in Addis-Ababa.

Boussaid, who met with several AU officials on the sidelines of the meetings of AU finance ministers on the funding of the pan-African organization, told MAP that he felt that Morocco is awaited not only to contribute to the said funding, but also to share its expertize, competence, and vision of Africa, in addition to its intellectual contribution for the implementation of the Union's reform.

Morocco intends to fully play this role and Africa should trust and take charge of itself, he said following separate meetings with Vice-President of the AU Commission Thomas Kwesi Quartey and the High Representative of the AU for the Union funding Donald Kaberuka.

"Africa must be innovative in seeking to take charge and finance itself," he said.

Morocco's participation in the meetings of Experts, Finance Ministers of the F10 +3 Committee and AU Finance Ministers (Aug.7-9) in Addis-Ababa marks the Kingdom's resolute commitment to contribute to the optimization of the work done by the Pan-African organization and the acceleration of the political and economic integration of the continent.
