The Moroccan head of government affirmed that Morocco enjoys security and stability thanks to the national security’s effort.
Rabat – Referring to the murder of two young Scandinavian women in Imlil, Moroccan Head of Government Saad Eddine El Othmani said that some isolated criminal or terrorist events do not have an impact on Morocco’s security and stability due to the efforts of various national security services.
The security services dismantled about 20 terrorist networks this year, which demonstrates the security efforts to protect the country and avoid terrible outcomes, El Othmani stated at Thursday government council on December 27.
Ensuring Morocco’s security, according to El Othmani, is “the responsibility of all citizens, civil society, intellectuals, media, government agencies. All Moroccan people have showed their rejection and condemnation of the terror attack, which reflects the Moroccan people’s solidarity and unity.”
El Othmani calls on government bodies to be more transparent
When it comes to facilitating communication between government institutions and the public, El Othmani commended the initiative of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the General Directorate of National Security (DGSN) for sharing their annual review and achievements this year.
The prime minister urged other government bodies to strengthen communication and share information with the public and media for more transparency.
Commenting on the government’s achievements for 2018, El Othmani said they were characterized by “great dynamism” and that his government launched many major projects and made “significant achievements, despite many challenges and problems.”
El Othmani mentioned the success of the national contest to recruit 200 disabled people in public service jobs in 2019, which was organized for the first time in Morocco last week.
The head of government also stressed the improvement of Morocco’s “overall economic indicators in a regional and international environment marked by many economic and social fluctuations and problems.”
He added that Morocco will have received 41 percent more foreign investments this year than last year.
