Moroccan King Mohammed VI said on Tuesday that he would promote the Moroccan government, headed by Prime Minister Abdelilah Benkiran, with resolution to carry on its path.

Delivering an "address to the nation" speech on the occasion of Throne Day, marking the14th anniversary of his accession to the throne, the King called on the Moroccan government to support the investments and increase job opportunities.

"Since my accession to the throne, I have launched several major economic and social projects and, at the same time, introduced political and institutional reforms to fulfill your aspirations. I have given my undivided attention to ensuring our citizens’ dignity and prosperity. Ours is a permanent march which is based on bold initiatives, resolute action, participatory approaches and effective use of the resources available," he stated.

He reminded that all previous governments made praiseworthy efforts concerning reform and development.

"The current government has found not only a positive and constructive legacy, but also concrete achievements in the economic and social spheres," he said, urging the government to press ahead along the same lines and to show the same will and determination to achieve further progress and development.

The King reiterated his determination to implement the nation’s policy with regard to the setting up of constitutional institutions and the promotion of good governance under the rule of law to achieve steady economic growth, sustainable development and social solidarity.

"I reaffirm my commitment to investment promotion and wish, once again, to call on the government to give priority to all measures that stimulate growth and create jobs," he noted.

As for the reform, moralization and modernization of the judicial system, the King underlined that the aim is not only to ensure that justice is served and grievances are dealt with properly, but also to foster a climate of trust which is conducive to development and investment.

The Moroccan Justice Ministry earlier announced that the advisory committee reached agreement on a final blueprint for the reform of the judicial system for which the right conditions have been met, following talks of 111 delegations in 11 cities.

The Benkiran government continues its talks with opposition parties to fill the gap after the resignation of several ministers as the Istiqlal (Independence) Party withdrew from the government on May 11.
