The representative of the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) in Morocco, François Reybet-Degat, appreciated, on Thursday, the tremendous efforts made by Morocco to protect the rights of refugees who live in the country. .
“In other countries, International organizations deploy tools to understand the social and economic situation of refugees. In Morocco, on the other hand, it is a benchmark institution which is the HCP (High Planning Commission) that deals with measuring the difference between the ambition of a national policy and the day-to-day reality,” he claimed on the sidelines of the signing of a partnership agreement between HCP and the UNHCR.
Considering the National Immigration and Asylum Strategy, Mr. Reybet-Degat stated that this initiative, carried out in accordance with the High Guidelines of His Majesty King Mohammed VI, is part of a human and inclusive dimension, in order to result in the access of refugees to education and the labor market.
On Thursday, the UNHCR and the HCP signed a partnership agreement, which is the result of a long-standing and fruitful collaboration between the two institutions concerning refugees in the country of Morocco.
