HM King Mohammed VI arrived, on Friday, June 5, in Libreville, for a working and friendship visit to the Republic of Gabon, last leg of an African tour that took the sovereign to Senegal, Guinea-Bissau and Côte d’Ivoire.

As part of his trip to Gabon, HM King Mohammed VI held, on Monday, June 8,  at the presidential palace in Libreville private talks with Gabonese president, HE Ali Bongo Ondimba.

Afterward, the two leaders chaired at the presidential palace in Libreville, the presentation ceremony of the Moroccan-Gabonese cooperation in human development, notably the experience-sharing between the National Initiative for Human Development (INDH) and Gabon’s Human Investment Strategy (SIHG).

Both integrated policies, which aim at reducing poverty and precariousness, reflect the commitment of the two heads of State, HM King Mohammed VI and President Ali Bongo Ondimba, to promote the welfare of their citizens and the sustainable development of their respective countries.

Sharing Morocco’s 10-year INDH expertise confirms the determination of Morocco and Gabon to deepen and broaden their partnership and rely on their own strength to meet the legitimate aspirations of their two brotherly peoples, whom are attached to African-African cooperation.

On this occasion, Interior minister Mohamed Hassad underlined that human development and investment are two strategic large-scale projects for Morocco and Gabon, and that sharing expertise in this area mirrors the solidarity-based, win-win cooperation between the two countries.

Hassad added that, pursuant to the royal and presidential instructions and as part of this cooperation, a Moroccan-Gabonese joint team was mobilized to devise a working plan on human development and investment while taking account of the platform of the two countries’ experiences, namely INDH and SIHG.

He noted that, over the past 10 years, 9.7 million people were impacted by this initiative, including 50% in the rural area, and 38,340 projects were carried out, including 20% related to income-generating activities.
