Bold decisions needed to address challenging economic and social issues, says King
Morocco, Politics, 10/9/2004
King Mohammed VI of Morocco has called on the Government to make appropriate and bold decisions to address the difficult economic and social issues facing the country, in a speech before Parliament that resumed, here Friday, after recess.
"I believe the general climate is more suitable than ever for achieving economic take-off and strong, sustainable growth, which provides productive jobs for our youth," said the monarch urging the government and all the actors concerned "to seize this historic opportunity and to build on our resolve as much as on our assets in order to succeed in our endeavours and to meet challenges."
"We realize the current national and international situation - with its difficulties and uncertainties - leaves us with no other option but to rise to the occasion and take up this crucial challenge," the King noted before calling upon the government to step up efforts in order to "remove all the obstacles which hinder greatly-needed productive investment and which prevent optimal use of all our resources and energies, inside as well as outside the country."
"It must also make appropriate, bold decisions to address the difficult economic and social issues facing the nation," he insisted, adding that the government must also take into account the need to preserve financial and social balances, while accommodating the constraints of consumption and operating costs as well as the requirements of financing productive investment."
"The government is also called upon to reconcile the dynamic of extending public and individual liberties with the need to preserve public order, thereby avoiding any gap between democratic development and social reality," the King went on.
