King Mohammed VI Chairs Council of Ministers in Rabat

King Mohammed VI chaired today, December 11, a council of ministers at the Rabat royal palace.

The council approved two bills and two conventions, according to a statement from the spokesman of the Royal Place Abdelhak Lamrini.

The council first approved a draft organic law, supplementing the basic law, on appointment to senior posts in accordance with the provisions of Articles 49 and 92 of the Constitution.

“This project aims to complete the list of public institutions and high positions, by adding the National Agency of Public Facilities, as well as the chiefs of sectoral regional administrative representations and the heads of the common regional administrative representations, stipulated by the decree on the National Charter of Administrative Devolution, to the list of public institutions and senior civil service positions whose appointments are examined in the Government Council,” state owned news outlet Maghreb Arab Press (MAP) reported.

The Council of Ministers also approved a bill to control the export and import of dual-use civilian and military goods and related services.

The spokesperson of the royal palace said that the project is part of Morocco’s compliance with its international commitments to combat the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction.

The purpose of the project is to establish “the regime applied to the export and import of the items and services related thereto, with the exception of those reserved for the National Defense as well as the authorization regime relating to the export, import, transit, control, identification of infringements and setting of commitments of exporters and importers,” the statement added.

Additionally, the council of Ministers approved two draft multi-party conventions. The conventions are multi-party agreements for the implementation of tax treaty measures to prevent tax base erosion and profit shifting, as well as a multi-stakeholder agreement between the competent authorities in the field of tax treaties and exchange of tax information for each country.
