The newly established Moroccan governmental team is committed and progressive. It is composed of 39 ministerial posts including three assumed by women and has prioritized the need to create employment, economic development, the optimal implementation of the reform of the education system putting the emphasis on qualitative aspect of training and on the elimination of illiteracy, and improved housing. In his opening speech for the installation of the parliamentary Chamber, His Majesty the King Mohammed VI has expressed the wish that the Moroccan women benefit from a more equitable treatment under the law. In addition, the King would like all Parliament members to become aware of the concerns and priorities of citizens living in isolated and remote areas in Morocco.

A governmental programme announced by the new Prime Minister places emphasis on the generalization of primary education, the implementation of non-formal education for out-of school children, and the amelioration of public health services.
