The two agreements were signed by the president of the FNM, Mehdi Qotbi, the IRESEN Director-General, Badr Ikken, and the Director of the Green Energy Park (GEP), Zakaria Naimi.
The MMVI is going green, Qotbi told MAP on the sidelines of the signing ceremony. This ecological approach is “a contribution of culture to save the planet,” he said, stressing that the MMVI will be the first museum in Africa to be equipped with solar energy. “It is a gesture of respect for the environment,” Qotbi went on.
For his part, IRESEN Director-General welcomed the signing of these two agreements, noting that the objective is to develop innovative solutions for the benefit of the Kingdom’s museums.
