Morocco craves for greater African action in International Bodies



Moroccan monarch, King Mohammed VI has highlighted the need for greater participation in international organisations. That was the theme of the message sent to the participants at the Annual Meetings of the World Bank Group (WB) and the International Monetary Fund (IMF) holding in Marrakech, Morocco.

The meeting ends on Sunday. He told the delegates that  “as an African nation, Morocco fervently hopes that the continent – which now has a voice within the G20 through the African Union – will be able to hold its rightful place in other international bodies and thus push forward its economic and social agendas.”

“African countries are among the nations that are suffering the most from the consequences of climate change, even though they are among the countries whose activities contribute the least to global warming”, wrote the King in this message, which was read out by Omar Kabbaj, Advisor to His Majesty the King.

In this regard, the King called for re-adapting the rules and frameworks governing debt to take better account of the constraints which affect the ability of the most indebted low-income countries to be proactive and tackle fluctuations.

“By 2050, Africa will be home to a quarter of the world’s population. It should benefit, today, from conditions that enable it to broaden its room for manoeuvre and harness its potential to meet the needs of African populations in an increasingly uncertain, unsettled world marked by profound paradigm shifts,” remarked King Mohammed VI.


He also recalled that Morocco has have made South-South cooperation a priority in its open door policy, “pursuing in this regard an approach based on co-development with our sister nations and friends on the continent.”
