Madrid 07/10/2017 (MAP) – The Spanish government approved on Friday a loan agreement worth 12.17 million euros to fund the construction of a seawater desalination plant that will supply drinking water to the north-eastern regions of Al Hoceima and Nador.
According to a statement from the Spanish Government, the loan will be granted through the Corporate Internationalisation Fund (FIEM) to Morocco’s office of electricity and drinking water (ONEE) for the construction of a seawater desalination plant that will supply drinking water to people in Al Hoceima and Nador regions.
