Morocco: Royal Visit to Nador - Important Social Projects for Integrated, Sustainable Human Development

Selouane  — Infrastructure in the province of Nador have been reinforced thanks to the projects launched, Friday in Selouane, by HM King Mohammed VI, intended to ensure an integrated and sustainable human development.

The Sovereign launched two real estate projects - Al Ikhlass and Al Inara - for the construction of 336 social housing units (250,000 dirhams), and another one to build a new-generation campus with an accommodation capacity of more than a thousand students.

The 118 million dirham projects aim to diversify the housing supply, improve the living conditions of local populations, enhance the attractiveness of the new urban centre of Selouane and overcome the deficit in student housing.

The Al Ikhlass and Al Inara projects, which fall within the scope of the national 250,000 dirham social housing, reflect the constant solicitude of HM the King for the middle class and limited-income households, by enabling them to have access to decent housing on concessional terms.

The 84 million dirham projects are bound to give strong impetus to the fight against unfit housing, contribute to overcoming housing shortage in Selouane, and accompany the urban, demographic and economic dynamics in the province of Nador as a whole.

In addition, 576 low cost housing (140,000 dirhams) and 564 social housing units (250,000 dirhams) are being built in the new urban area of ??Selouane.

As to the campus, it will strengthen student accommodation facilities, encourage girls in the region to pursue their studies, and improve learning conditions.

It is part of a comprehensive approach which considers training and human resource upgrading a lever for any development process.
