    On this occasion, Benchaaboun noted the relevance of the response measures adopted by Moroccan authorities since the outbreak of the pandemic, in order to limit the impact of the Covid-19 crisis on the national economy and in accordance with the High Directives of HM King Mohammed VI.

    He also reviewed the main priority reform projects undertaken by Morocco to promote a dynamic recovery and strengthen economic resilience, notably the economic recovery plan brought by the Mohammed VI Investment Fund, the generalization of social protection, and public sector reform.

    In this regard, he noted that the WB was asked to further strengthen its support, financially and technically, in order to assist the Kingdom in its efforts to contain the effects of the crisis and implement its development program.

    Governor of BAM Abdellatif Jouahri noted that the WB is called upon to support Morocco in some priority development areas, including national productivity resilience, informal sector integration, and digitalization.
