Determined to deliver on its promise of transforming its southern provinces into a continental hub, Morocco is engaged in a spending spree to complete a number of development projects in the region.

On Friday this week, Morocco’s Minister of Equipment, Transport, Logistics and Water, Abdelkader Amara, traveled to the region to inspect the construction sites of several road and water projects in the Laayoune-Sakia El Hamra region.

In the city of Laayoune, Amara and Abderrahim El Hafidi, the director general of the National Office of Electricity and Drinking Water visited the construction sites of desalination and wastewater treatment plants.
