Jordan Eager To Benefit from Morocco’s Decentralization Experience, Jordanian Minister

Rabat – Jordanian Minister of Local Administration Walid Masri said, on Monday in Rabat, that his country wishes to benefit from Morocco’s experience in decentralization.

After his talks with Minister Delegate for the Interior Noureddine Boutayeb, Masri told the press that this meeting aims to learn about the experience of Morocco in the field decentralization which it has adopted long ago.

Masri underlined that Jordan, which is “on the same path, has initiated long ago the experience of decentralization within municipal councils, as is the case in Morocco, as well as in provincial councils elected since 2017, and wishes to draw inspiration from the Moroccan experience in this area.”

The transition from centralization to decentralization is a difficult step, hence the importance for Jordan to get informed of the difficulties and constraints faced by Morocco and the solutions to overcome them, said the Jordanian Minister, who was accompanied by a parliamentary delegation.

In addition, the Minister recalled the historical and close relations between the Moroccan and Jordanian Kingdoms, as well as the regular consultations between HM King Mohammed VI and HM King Abdullah II of Jordan, on all Arab, Islamic and international issue.
