Mali Wants to Learn From Morocco’s Lagoon Protection Experience
Rabat – A Malian ministerial delegation, currently on a friendship and working visit to Morocco (March 8-9) said, Friday in Rabat, that it wants to learn from the Moroccan experience in terms of lagoon environment protection.
Led by Malian Prime Minister Soumeylou Boubèye Maïga, this delegation paid a visit to the headquarters of the Agency for Bouregreg Valley Development and was able to learn about the means and good practices that can be used in Mali to meet its environmental challenges.
Mali has a presidential program of urban innovation, including part of the redevelopment of sites housing different buildings and activities, aimed at developing and protecting the banks of the Niger River, said Maïga, voicing the wish to draw inspiration from Morocco’s experience in the development of the Bouregreg Valley.
He also said that an agenda has been set for this purpose and that the agency’s experts will travel to Mali to share their experiences in this regard, noting that, by mid-May, “we will present a formalized project.”
The Malian official also emphasized the importance of this kind of project on the socio-economic level and in promoting the development of the country, underlining the leading role that Morocco plays in South-South cooperation, his great experiences and his progress in various fields.
