The commission will take into consideration citizens’ concerns and opinions to address social and economic issues.
Rabat – Morocco’s Special Commission on the Development Model (CSMD) is adopting a new communication strategy to engage Moroccans, using a digital platform to interact with civil society and citizens. The CSMD’s communication strategy will orient itself towards social networks.
CSMD is seeking to hear from political parties, trade unions, private sector, and associations with a constructive, open spirit, according to the state-owned Maghreb Arab Press (MAP). The commission has not yet indicated through MAP a web address where citizens can register their opinions.
The decision came during the commission’s plenary meeting to discuss how it would interact with civil society, on Monday, December 23, at the Academy of the Kingdom of Morocco in Rabat.
Subsequently, the committee will organize field meetings with citizens and various segments of Moroccan society, starting January 2.
The CSMD also created a charter of rules on the obligations of its members.
Under the principles stipulated in the charter, committee members will participate voluntarily, without compensation or taking any benefits.
Two Moroccan journalists, Aicha Akalay and Abdellah Tourabi, will head up the commission’s communication with all the media.
Headed by Morocco’s ambassador to France, Chakib Benmoussa, the CSMD is tasked with making recommendations for reforms in Morocco to address ongoing issues of social and economic disparity and gaps in education, health, business, and investment.
