Italy to co-finance two projects in Morocco
Italy has approved the co-financing of two projects, worth over Euro 3.5 million, in Morocco, the Italian embassy in Rabat said in a release.
The projects, proposed by Italian NGOs, aim to achieve rural development in the province of Settat (near Casablanca) and promote craftsmanship in the province of Nador (north-eastern Morocco).
The project, to be carried out in Nador, will require a budget of Euro 1.54 million. Half of this sum will be funded by the Italian Foreign ministry while the second half will be covered by Italian NGOs and other Moroccan and Italian partners.
This project will improve work conditions in 1,250 craftsmanship units and help train 300 young people in the province of Nador.
The second project will cost Euro 2.08 million, including 60 percent that will be financed by the Italian Foreign ministry. (menareport.com)
