Morocco at the forefront of countries in the region

Morocco is at the forefront of countries in the Mediterranean region that have adopted bold measures and initiatives in skills training and vocational training, said Wednesday in Madrid, the Minister of Economic Inclusion, small business, employment and skills, Younes Sekkouri.

Thanks to the enlightened vision of King Mohammed VI, Morocco has adopted avant-garde initiatives in terms of skills and vocational training, combining university education and vocational training, noted Sekkouri who was speaking at a high-level meeting on skills in the Mediterranean, organized by the Union for the Mediterranean (UfM) and the European Union (EU).

The recent inauguration by HM the King in the city of Tamesna of the City of Trades and Skills (CMC) in the region of Rabat-Salé-Kénitra, a new generation vocational training establishment at the service of excellence and innovation, is the best proof of the progress made by Morocco in this area and of the firm commitment of the Kingdom to the training of young people, the minister pointed out.

The program relating to the establishment of new generation training establishments at the service of excellence and innovation, in partnership with the private sector, responds to the requirements of the labor market at national and international level, in particular by regarding adaptation to new professions, he specified, adding that the CMCs constitute world-class infrastructures which offer young people a very high standard of training.

This is a great success and an unprecedented project for the development of vocational training, noted Sekkouri, emphasizing the importance of Moroccan skills abroad to support and consolidate the vocational training programs launched in the different regions of the Kingdom.

This meeting comes in the wake of the important work carried out by Morocco, which last year chaired the ministerial meeting of UfM ministers responsible for employment and labor and which was crowned by the Marrakech Declaration, he recalled.

The work of the High Level Meeting on Skills (July 11-13) is structured around three panels focusing on investing in skills, supporting transitions (green, demographic and digital) and anticipating the future of work.

The event brings together a wide range of partners and stakeholders to exchange ideas, experiences and good practices, in order to respond to current opportunities and challenges in skills and skills development in an ever-changing labor market. evolution.

It aims to collect, discuss, evaluate and disseminate experiences and good practices, particularly in terms of support for the creation of decent jobs, quality education and training systems, skills and employability.
