The Head of Government, Saad Eddine El Othmani, and the President of the General Confederation of Enterprises of Morocco (CGEM), Salaheddine Mezouar, held on Tuesday in Rabat, a meeting which saw the launch of a common public private coworking mechanism.
According to a joint statement from the department of the head of government and the CGEM, this initiative and action platform, called the “Government-CGEM Platform”, is composed of thematic working groups and brings together the public sector and the private sector.
Its objective is to raise, on the basis of some thirty identified issues, the constraints that impede the business climate, in order to facilitate the creation of value and the creation of job opportunities, while contributing to the reinforcement of climate of trust among economic operators.
This innovative platform makes it possible to act on urgent projects requiring concrete responses in the short term and on those having a structuring impact on the company and on all citizens, requiring actions in the medium term, explains the press release.
The initiative aims to support and strengthen the prerogatives granted to specialized bodies and commissions, to enable them to accelerate the implementation of ongoing projects and to propose new reforms deemed relevant, according to the same source.
The system of governance of the mechanism, put in place by the two parties, counts on the one hand a Joint Council co-chaired by the Head of Government and by the President of the CGEM and on the other hand, by a coordination committee and the communiqué, adding that the first thematic working groups were set up to deal with priority issues, such as investment and the business environment, training and employment as well as business-administration relations.
