On the sidelines of the a Business ceremony that gathered representatives of the 500 biggest SMEs in Morocco, the head of the Moroccan government, who was present as a distinguished guest during the event, asked Moroccan SMEs’ heads to be patient vis-à-vis the reforms the government is currently adopting in the sector.
Benkirane said that “the upcoming reforms in the justice sector will certainly be a plus to your sector. We are working towards more reforms. The development is not impossible. We need time. Let’s work together as a team. I am not a Kamikaze. The government is working to start the engine.”
Right after uttering those words, some of the present SMEs’ heads answered sarcastically “don’t forget the engine oil,” making reference to the financial aid package the Moroccan state plans to give as support to such companies in the future. [oil in Moroccan Darija refers to money]
Benkirane smiled and said that “before flying, the chick walks,” meaning that they should be patient in regards to the aid package as well.
“The previous governments managed to solve one problem. Today we are set to solve 4-5 problems at once with the new reforms,” Benkirane further noted.
