The promotion of social sectors is justified by its role in improving the living conditions of citizens and increasing economic growth, said Saad Dine El Otmani in an open debate with students from the Higher Information and Communication Institute (ISIC).
On this occasion, he pointed out that the structural reforms of the education and training system have always been the center of attention of the Government, which has worked to increase the number of beneficiaries of the "Tayssir" program, to develop pre-school education given the importance, to fight school waste to reduce the number of students in the class.
Expansion and strengthening of social protection mechanisms are also important for the executive branch, he added, stressing that the pension system can only be reformed and strengthened to cover 90% of citizens.
He also highlighted the government's efforts to develop an "integrated youth policy" aimed at improving the performance of the training system and creating jobs.
In terms of foreign investment, Morocco has made significant developments as evidenced by the latest Doing Business ranking where the Kingdom has risen nine places to be in 60th position, welcoming the head of government.
He further assured that the Government was determined to continue the implementation of its programs, especially at the social level, stating that the majority, "despite differing views on certain issues", remained united and determined to consolidate Kingdom leadership at regional and continental levels.
