The new housing project in the Kingdom’s southern provinces, which will be submitted to His Majesty King Mohammed VI for approval, is a comprehensive and integrated program that will make available to the inhabitants of these provinces equipped lots, "said Friday the chairman of the Royal Advisory Council for Saharan Affairs (CORCAS), Mr. Ould Errachid Khalihenna.
"This programme is intended for all social classes who have not yet benefited from housing with all necessary assistance including granting free lots to guarantee loans," he told the MAP at the end of the CORCAS 2nd ordinary session.
He added that "we have found ways to solve this endemic problem in the region which is housing. This is a large promising project to be launched next January."
The new program covers the servicing of more than 68,000 lots of land with the aim of achieving an equivalent of 124,000 homes in the southern provinces with an investment of around 4.5 billion MAD.
It aims at eradicating any form of slums in the southern provinces, responding to the current demands for housing, as well as future needs which will be expressed by the population growth in the southern provinces.
Mr. Ould Errachid Khalihenna has, on the other hand, welcomed the successful outcome of his mediation for the settlement of some social problems. Following a series of discussions and negotiations with all partners, "we have reached an amicable compromise that allows all parties to re-enjoy their rights," he said.
At the end of the CORCAS 2nd ordinary session, the chairman of the Royal Advisory Council for Saharan Affairs sent on behalf of all participants in this session, a message of fidelity and loyalty to His Majesty the King Mohammed VI.
