King Mohammed VI Delivered an Inspiring Speech for Throne Day


Morocco’s King Mohammed VI urged the government to speed up the implementation of “Morocco Offer” project in the field of green hydrogen as the country seeks to diversify its energy sources by increasing the share of renewables.

“I invite the government to speed up the implementation of this project, to make sure the requirements of quality are observed, to leverage our country’s significant potential in this regard, and to meet the expectations of leading global investors in this promising field,” said the King in a speech he delivered Saturday on the 24th anniversary of his accession to the Throne.

The King also cited the repercussions of the current global crisis and successive droughts that affected the cost of living.

“I have instructed the government to take the necessary measures to mitigate the negative effects of the current situation on the social segments and sectors that are most affected, and to make sure basic products are available on the market,” he said.

He also called for more efforts to enhance the resilience of Morocco’s economy and urged the government to complete the implementation of the social protection project with payment of social benefits to the families concerned to start at the end of this year.

“I hope this direct income will contribute to improving the living conditions of millions of families and children, whose suffering I am sensitive to,” he said.

“As regards water resources management – a sector requiring greater commitment and vigilance – I have made sure a national water program for the period 2020-2027 is developed,” he said.

“I call for strict monitoring of all implementation stages and stress that there will be zero tolerance for any form of mismanagement, or chaotic, irresponsible use of water resources,” the King added.

King Mohammed VI highlighted the need to commit to seriousness to materialize Morocco’s large-scale development and economic progress plans as well as to rise to challenges.

Drawing on the memorable run of Morocco’s national team during the World Cup, the King highlighted in the Throne Day speech he delivered Saturday evening the impact of patriotism as a driver of success.

“Our sons provided some of the best illustrations of patriotism and unity, as well as family and community cohesion. They made me and the entire Moroccan people proud,” said the King referring to the Moroccan national team led by Walid Regragui which was the first African team to make it to the World Cup semi-finals.

Morocco-Spain-Portugal joint bid

“That same spirit guided my decision to make a joint bid with our friends, Spain and Portugal, to host the 2030 World Cup Finals, which I hope will be an historic event at all levels,” said the Monarch.

The unprecedented candidacy will bring together two continents and will unite the two shores of the Mediterranean in line with a spirit of cooperation, interaction and understanding, he said.

The King also lauded the ingenuity of Moroccan youth citing as an example the manufacturing of the first Moroccan-made car as well as the development by a Moroccan of a hydrogen-powered car prototype.


Morocco-Algeria

King Mohammed VI of Morocco reiterated his call for open borders with Algeria, saying ties with the north African neighbor are “stable”

“My endeavors to serve the Moroccan people are not limited to domestic issues only. I am also keen to establish solid relations with sister nations and friendly countries, particularly our neighbors,” he said.

“In recent months, many people have been wondering about Moroccan-Algerian relations. They are stable, and we look forward to seeing them improve,” he added.

“I should like to tell the leaders and people of our sister nation, Algeria, that no evil will ever be done to them, nor will any harm ever come to them from Morocco. I want them to know that we attach special importance to the bonds of affection, friendship, exchange, and interaction between our peoples,” said the King.

“I pray to Almighty God for things to return to normality, and for the opening of borders between the two neighboring, sister countries and peoples,” he said.


Morocco-Palestine

King Mohammed VI has reiterated Morocco’s unchanged position in support of Palestine’s legitimate right to enjoy an independent state with East Jerusalem as its capital.

The monarch said that the support comes as part of Morocco’s seriousness towards its commitments, stressing that he reaffirms Rabat’s “unwavering position regarding the just cause of Palestine and the legitimate right of our Palestinian brothers and sisters to set up their independent State, with East Jerusalem as its capital and to make sure all peoples in the region enjoy security and stability.”
