Summary: Casablanca - HM King Mohammed VI, accompanied by HRH Prince Moulay Rachid, chaired, on Monday at the Casablanca royal palace, the setting up ceremony of the Economic and Social Council.

On this occasion, the Sovereign gave a speech in which he underlined that the Council's setting up denotes the fresh momentum injected into the reform process which HM the King launched shortly after he assumed the leadership of the Moroccan people.
