Initial One billion euros earmarked for human development initiative

Agadir, 27 juin - More than MAD 10 billion, around 1 billion euros, have been earmarked to carry out the priority projects provided for by the Moroccan Initiative for Human Development (INDH) during the 2006-2010 period.

The funding convention of the initiative, known by its French acronym INDH, was signed here Monday by HM King Mohammed VI after it was worked out in five weeks, in the morrow of the Royal speech on May 18 that announced the large-scale, social policy based on integrated programs to reduce social disparities and fight exclusion. It is designed to provide basic infrastructure to millions, from adequate housing and drinking water to health care and education.

The convention, which was also signed by the Prime minister, the ministers of finance and the interior and the Hassan II Fund executive board president, provides for additional and progressive spending that will amount to MAD 1,5 billion in 2006 to reach MAD 2.5 billion by 2010.

The instrument is setting up this current year a special account (INDH support fund) in anticipation of the 2006 appropriation bill to secure additional and specific funding to the initiative.

The earmarked funds are drawn from the State general budget that is contributing 60%, local collectivities 20% and international cooperation 20%.

For the second quarter of 2005, MAD 250 million have been allocated to start on-the-terrain actions, contributed to by the State budget with MAD 50 million, local collectivites 100 million and the Hassan II Fund MAD 100 million.

After 2010, INDH funding needs will be reconsidered to identify resource consolidation mechanisms, according to future needs.

'Ties between Morocco and the United States are getting stronger', HM the King:


July 4 -Rabat, "Ties between Morocco and the United States are getting stronger and stronger at bilateral, regional and international levels thanks to (...) our keen determination to enhance and expand our strategic partnership", said HM King Mohammed VI in a message to U.S. president George W. Bush.




"I am convinced the close, longstanding friendship which has united our countries for more than two centuries, together with the common views we hold on all matters of interest to our nations, will help us fulfill our aspirations, strengthen our strategic partnership and make the most of the many cooperation opportunities offered to us," underlined the message, addressed to the American president on the occasion of the Independence Day of the United States.

The Moroccan king expressed "deep appreciation" for President Bush continued support for the political, economic and social reforms underway in Morocco.

He added that he is keen on working with the American President "in order to consolidate the bonds uniting our peoples, who share a firm belief in the lofty values of democracy, freedom, tolerance and constructive interaction between all peoples and cultures".

This, he said, will "help us uphold human rights, preserve man’s dignity and achieve sustainable development in a world where stability, peace and security prevail."

The poverty with king Mohamed grows VI

The monarch sends a plan to restrain the increase of the misery in Morocco

Everything is to make specific. King Mohamed I SAW almost dedicated the integrity of its speech of past 20 of August, in that the revolution of the king and the town was commemorated, to concienciar and to insist to the Moroccans to fight together against the poverty and the social inequality. The "new revolution", as they denominate some Moroccan newspapers, tries to restrain the rate of poverty that during the last years - under the reign of the present monarch it has continued growing, and to create a solid infrastructure base that guarantees the development of the zones and worked against more of the country.
