Nicolas Sarkozy and Dominique Strauss-Kahn will take part, in Casablanca, on September 13th and 14th, at the Moroccan Employers’ Summer University, which will focus this time on the new economic model of the country, such as wished by King Mohammed VI.
The 2nd edition of the Summer University of the General Confederation of Enterprises of Morocco (CGEM), to be held on 13 and 14 September in Casablanca, will be marked by the presence of former French President Nicolas Sarkozy and former French Minister of the Economy and Finance and former director general of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) Dominique Strauss-Kahn. Under the theme: “Entrepreneurship, central axis of our development model”, the meeting will be held at the Higher Institute of Commerce and Business Administration (ISCAE).
In a statement, Salah Eddine Mezouar, president of the CGEM, affirmed to appreciate the challenge of this second edition. Because, according to him, it turned out that the way of development followed so far by Morocco had created real inequalities, with deep social impacts.
On its official website, the Moroccan employers’ organization stressed that “this meeting is a momentous opportunity to draw up an uncompromising assessment of the strengths and weaknesses of the Moroccan economy, based mainly on domestic demand and high public investment, having not allowed, for more than a decade, to boost a growth which records very low rates approaching the 3%”.
The new course set by Mohammed VI
After announcing his creation in his speech on the occasion of the Feast of the throne, King Mohammed VI set the course that must follow the special commission on the new model of economic development of the country.
“Our wish is that this commission fulfill a triple mission of readjustment, anticipation, foresight to enable our country to approach the future with serenity and assurance,” said Mohammed VI in his speech Tuesday, August 20, at occasion of the 66th anniversary of the Revolution of the King and the People. “The model of development that we aspire to will assert itself as authentically Moroccan,” he said.
While appealing to all the forces of the country to unite to inject a new dynamic, the Shereefian sovereign maintained that “our ambition is that, in its new version, this model of development constitutes a solid foundation to make emerge a new contract with unanimous support”.
