The head of the special commission entrusted two Moroccan journalists with the management of the communications department.
Rabat – The Special Commission of the Development Model (CSMD) chaired by Chakib Benmoussa held its first meeting on Monday morning at the Academy of the Kingdom of Morocco.
At the meeting, Chakib Benmoussa designated two Moroccan journalists Aicha Akalay and Abdellah Tourabi in charge of the communication pole to maintain relations with the media and to listen to public opinion as well as demands expressed through social networks, a close source to the CSMD told state-owned Maghreb Arab Press (MAP).
Akalay, holder of a Masters in journalism from Sciences Po Paris, was until last September the editor of the Francophone magazine “TelQuel.” During her tenure as editor in chief, Akalay launched the digital version of the publication.
Abdellah Tourabi, a graduate in Law and Political Science, is the presenter of the debate program “Confidences de presse” on Moroccan television channel 2M.
The duo will be responsible for “communicating with all the media, being available to journalists and providing them with all the elements and explanations necessary for their work.”
The CSMD is also implementing a communication strategy oriented towards social networks, aiming to interact with the users of these platforms.
The special committee is charged with bringing suggestions to better implement the reforms that Morocco has adopted in order to address ongoing issues of social and economic disparity, gaps in the education and health sectors, as well as the business and investment.
