“The Moroccan people celebrate the 20th anniversary of the enthronement of His Majesty King Mohammed VI on July 30, 2019. Twenty years of profound changes have completely transformed Morocco, and since its accession to the throne in 1999, the King of Morocco has embarked on a a series of constitutional, political, social and economic reforms promoting the establishment of a modern and democratic society in the country Reforms undertaken in various fields have consolidated Morocco’s political and economic stability and made it a regional power. the Moroccan citizen has been at the center of all these reforms aimed at promoting human rights, consolidating democratic institutions and ensuring human development and the prosperity of society.

To cite only some of these reforms, it is extremely important to highlight the reform of the family code, promoted in 2004 by King Mohammed VI, which is an important step in the fight for gender equality, placing Morocco at the center of concerns. the vanguard of the Arab-Muslim world in the field of women’s rights. The National Initiative for Human Development, launched in 2005 in Morocco to fight against poverty, exclusion and precariousness, is also highlighted.

Likewise, important institutions have been established and strengthened, such as the National Council for Human Rights, the Ombudsman, administrative tribunals, and so on.

With regard to the fight against religious extremism and terrorism, Morocco has established itself as a model for the region, promoting the values ​​of tolerance and moderation, principles upheld by the Islamic religion. In this sense, the Mohammed VI Institute for the Training of Imams and Preachers has been set up, where many students come from friendly countries in Africa, Arabs and Europe.

With regard to major works and development projects, the reign of King Mohammed VI was marked by the deployment of an important infrastructure network.

Morocco has adopted in recent years a proactive and successful foreign policy. The two decades of the reign of King Mohammed VI have revealed important achievements in the field of diplomacy, which have seen great progress and many successes, capitalizing on the credibility of the Kingdom on the regional and international scene.

In addition to consolidating its relations with its traditional and geographically close partners, Morocco, under the leadership of King Mohammed VI, has developed South-South solidarity cooperation with African countries (beyond West Africa). ) and Latin American. The return of Morocco to the institutions of the African Union in 2017 culminated in the gains of Moroccan diplomacy to reaffirm the African dimension of the Kingdom which is currently positioned as the first investor in West Africa and the second largest in Africa. whole continent. ”
