American Jewish Committee briefed on development dynamics in Dakhla-Oued Eddahab
Members of a delegation of the American Jewish Committee visited Dakhla where they were briefed on the dynamics of development in the Dakhla-Oued Eddahab region and the projects launched in all fields.
The members of the delegation, led by the head of the Political Affairs Department of the American Jewish Committee (AJC), Jason F. Isaacson, held a meeting with the chairman of the Regional Council, El Khattat Yanja, during which they reviewed the investment opportunities and the various development projects carried out or underway in the region. They also learned about the role of this elected body in the management of local affairs.
In a statement to the press, Isaacson stressed that during this meeting, which provided an opportunity to learn about the development process in the Dakhla-Oued Eddahab region, emphasis was placed on the territorial integrity of the Kingdom, “which has always been supported and defended by the American Jewish Committee”, considered one of the partners of the Kingdom of Morocco.
He said that the level of development that the members of the American Jewish Committee noted upon their arrival in Dakhla clearly reflects the wisdom of King Mohammed VI, who is working to consolidate the foundations of development in the region, especially in the industrial sector.
The delegation members were informed about the new development model of the Southern Provinces, launched by King Mohammed VI in 2015 and about the key productive sectors of the region’s economy, such as tourism, agriculture, sea fishing, renewable energy, and infrastructure.
These sectors have turned the region into a real economic hub attractive to investors from all over the world.
This was the third visit by an AJC delegation to the North African Kingdom since the signing of the Abraham Accords in December 2020 between the United States, Israel and Morocco.
