The report on the new development model (NMD), presented to HM King Mohammed VI on Tuesday, is “ambitious” and “pragmatic” as it identifies the challenges that Morocco must address in the future, said President of the France-Morocco friendship group at the National Assembly Mustapha Laabid. “I am delighted with the publication of this long-awaited report, the result of a broad participatory process, started in December 2019 and bringing together high-level figures, and which proposes concrete development avenues for the Kingdom of Morocco over the next decades,” Laabid said in a statement to MAP. “Beyond the symbolic, this report is ambitious and pragmatic as it is initially based on a relevant analysis of the country’s strengths and weaknesses in order to better identify the challenges to be addressed in the future, such as social inclusion, the organization of the health system, education, devolution and the reform of the administration, and the industrialization in the field of transformation”, noted the French-Moroccan deputy.  “As for the method, the setting up of a frame of reference including a strategic steering and change management system, to ensure permanently and in a very concrete way the effectiveness of the implementation and the consistency of actions with the set objectives is very sound”, said the President of the France-Morocco friendship group at the National Assembly. The general report of the Ad-hoc Committee on the New Development Model (CSMD) was presented to HM King Mohammed VI on Tuesday.
