03 Mar 2021

Abidjan - Managing director of the state-owned company Marchica Med, Said Zarrou, paid a site visit on Sunday as part of the monitoring of the progress of the Cocody Bay development and enhancement project in Abidjan.

The visit covered several platforms, particularly the marine structures in Cocody Bay, launched in 2016 and now completed.

Zarrou, accompanied by Morocco's ambassador in Abidjan, Abdelmalek Kettani, and several senior officials of Marchica Med, also inquired about the dredging of the bay and the construction of the marina, launched in 2017 and now completed.

According to Marchica Med (company managing the project), this site visit coincides with the 7th anniversary of the visit of HM King Mohammed VI to Abidjan in February 2014, during which the Sovereign had delivered his historic speech of February 25 urging Africa to trust Africa and outlining the roadmap for a new era of active south-south cooperation.

This major project, which was launched in 2016 by HM King Mohammed VI and President Ouattara, involves the ecological rehabilitation of the bay; the construction of dams, a canal and hydraulic and marine structures; the building of road infrastructure, crossing works and a viaduct; the construction of a marina and an urban park. It also aims to develop Cocody Bay and its watershed.
