Private public partnership: Mali honored in Casablanca

The Minister of Industrial Development and Investment Promotion, Moulaye Ahmed Boubacar, took part in the second edition of the African Public-Private Partnership Forum from 12 to 13 November in Casablanca. Moulaye Ahmed Boubacar represented Prime Minister Soumeylou BoubèyeMaïga, guest of honor at the event. With the central theme of "Promotion of ICTs and Agriculture in Africa through PPPs", this forum intended to be a catalyst in which public and private actors would occupy a central place.

The term PPP refers to a contract signed between private state companies to finance, construct or manage infrastructures, to highlight the experience of Morocco in this area.

For the organizers, led by our compatriot Daouda Coulibaly, CEO of TRAINIS, this event in Morocco is aligned with the commitment of His Majesty King Mohamed VI for the South-South cooperation and economic development of the continent. According to him, Morocco is a reference in terms of PPP and agriculture. Hence the holding of this forum in Casablanca.

It is through this forum to create a framework for exchange and reflection on the various issues related to the implementation of infrastructure projects, according to the model of Public-Private Partnership in the continent.

In his speech, the Minister of Industrial Development and Investment Promotion welcomed the holding of this forum because, he said, given the scarcity of public resources, private sector participation seems to be essential for the emergence. This concern is widely shared by Mali, who views PPP as one of its priorities and included it in its institutional development mechanism through the creation of a PPP Unit. It is an ambitious device based on effective and transparent interventions.

For Moulaye Ahmed Boubacar, Africa is doomed to succeed in development because it is the only way to fight against illegal immigration, youth unemployment and poverty plaguing the continent today.

On the sidelines of this forum, Minister Moulaye Ahmed Boubacar had fruitful discussions with representatives of the sheriff's government, who invited him to return to fulfill those wishes. The minister also met with leaders of leading Moroccan groups specializing in industries, investment and renewable energy.

During a gala dinner that sanctioned this forum, the Minister of Industrial Development and Investment Promotion received on behalf of the Prime Minister a certificate of recognition for the support of the government of Mali to this forum.
