Holding of the 15th session of the Board of Directors of the Agency for the Development of the Bouregreg Valley

Mr. Jamaâ El Moâtassim, President of the commune council of Salé, attended the meeting of the 15th session of the Board of Directors of the Agency for the development of the Bouregreg valley, held Wednesday, March 28, 2018. This session was held under the chairmanship of the Head of Government, Saâd Eddine El Othmani, and in the presence of many ministers, the president of the Rabat-Salé-Kénitra region, the presidents of the communes concerned, as well as the director of the Agency with several of his collaborators.

The Head of Government called on all parties concerned by the projects of the Agency for the development of the Bouregreg Valley to contribute effectively to the success of this project and to provide the necessary support to the Agency by giving the financial resources in order to enable it to carry out these projects within the prescribed deadlines.

It is indispensable to contribute the necessary support for the projects scheduled in the program contract and the agreements signed between the Agency and its partners with regard to carry out this development project, El Othmani said, referring to a “delay due mainly to the non-respect by some partners of their financial commitments”.

Mr. El Othmani invited all parties involved to continue to support the Agency and provide it with the financial resources for the implementation of the programmed projects.
This is the last year in the program-contract between the State and the Agency for the realization of these projects, “which calls us to the need to think about the best ways to complete projects that are lagging behind, to ensure the achievement of the expected development objectives of this important project, “said the Head of Government.

He also stressed that this meeting of the Board of Directors of the Agency is of particular importance as it must consider how to make 2018 a year of completion of projects, and thus ensure the realization of the program contract in a reasonable time.

In this regard, Mr. El Othmani urged all actors to consider the possibility of elaborating a further amendment to the current program contract taking into account the changes and difficulties the agency faces, as well as the time needed to catch up with certain projects.

In addition, the Head of Government has highlighted the realization by the Agency for the development of the Bouregreg Valley, a series of projects that have “largely contributed to fluid traffic between the cities of Rabat and Salé, such as the Tramway project, the Hassan II bridge, the Moulay Youssef bridge, the Oudayas tunnel and the N.2 ring road

which will directly link the Mohammed VI Avenue in Rabat to the N.6 national road in Salé on a distance of 8 km, and whose completion rate has reached 90% “.Regarding his role in cultural promotion in Rabat-Salé, Mr. El Othmani noted that the Agency has created its subsidiary “Bouregreg Cultures” to build the National Museum of Archeology and Earth Sciences and the Grand Theater of Rabat, whose work is progressing significantly, calling on all stakeholders to redouble their efforts to achieve it on time.
