Aziz Akhannouch, the President of the Moroccan government, and Alice Albright, the president of the Millennium Challenge Cooperation, presided over the Compact II program’s concluding ceremony.
The event featured a variety of interventions, testimonials, and experiences where people shared their stories and the program’s accomplishments were praised.
The Moroccan Minister of Industry and Trade Ryad Mezzour, the Moroccan Minister of Economic Inclusion, Small Business, Employment, and Skills Younes Sekkouri, the Director General of the Millennium Challenge Account-Morocco Agency (MCA-Morocco), Malika Laasri, and the Resident Director of the Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC) in Morocco, Carrie Monahan, were all in attendance at the event.
Akhannouch took the podium for the opening remarks, using the occasion to highlight the program’s accomplishments and express gratitude to everyone who helped make it successful as well as King Mohamed IV.
He was in charge of this program’s initial implementation and is currently monitoring its updates and outcomes.
The head of government said, “This is a successful initiative, and it should continue to ensure future success.
Albright viewed the occasion as a historic one and remembered the late former MCC director’s accomplishments, which will endure.
Albright added, “If she were here, she’d be happy to remember this.
The largest investment MCC has ever made was more than one billion US dollars in Morocco.
The program aims to enhance the standard of instruction and the working environment, impart the key abilities needed to succeed in the labor market, and produce experiences that can change a person’s life.
Beneficiaries of the program from all backgrounds and industries all concurred that Compact II improved their quality of life.
A young female student who called herself physical proof of the program’s success opened the moving testimonies by attesting to the improvement and inclusion of infrastructures at her high school following the program’s engagement.
A school’s principal emphasized how Compact II helped transform his institution into a place that attracts students with modern technology and efficient teaching strategies.
A representative of the businesses taking part in the initiative described how the group of beneficiaries now rationalizes spending, achieves better goals, and fosters creativity.
Imane Jeddadi, a business administration trainee, claimed that the program has significantly enhanced teaching techniques in terms of providing a range of material and fostering critical thinking abilities.
As part of the Compact II cooperation program, which had previously been agreed upon by the governments of Morocco and the US, represented by MCC, the first edition of an unprecedented female leadership program titled “Women’s Direction” was launched in January by MCC and MCA along with the Ministry of Economic Inclusion, Small Business, Employment, and Skills.
