King Mohammed VI chaired the signing ceremony of three partnership agreements.

Mohamed Benchaaboun, minister of economy and finance, and Amzazi signed the first agreement on the development of the Tayssir program, boarding schools, and school canteens. The Tayssir program is provisional social measures which could make education reforms bear fruit.

The second agreement was on the establishing of two vocational training centers in health professions in Rabat and Casablanca. It was signed by Benchaaboun, Amzazi, Minister of Health Anas Doukkali, and Loubna Tricha, director general of the Office of Vocational Training and Labor Promotion (OFPPT).

The third agreement, signed by Amzazi and  Rachid Talbi Alami, minister of youth and sports, concerned “the establishment of integrated school programs ‘sport-study,’ and vocational training and higher education courses for athletes,” wrote MAP.

During the ceremony, many professors and officials from the Ministry of Education received the King’s Throne medal (Wissam Al Arch).

Princess Lalla Khadija is the second child of King Mohammed VI and Princess Lalla Salma, after Crown Prince Moulay El Hassan. She was born on May 28, 2007.

On May 25, 2017, Princess Lalla Khadija took part in a ceremony with her mother, Lalla Salma, in Rabat. Lalla Salma received the gold medal of the World Health Organization (WHO) in recognition for her action and commitment to fighting cancer in Morocco and worldwide.
