Morocco allocated $188 million to fight corruption on Tuesday after announcing the launch of a national strategy to fight the issue and signing ten agreements with non-governmental sectors to establish a national anti-corruption coalition.
The agreements include programs to improve public service, transparency and access to information, accountability and the integrity of the private sector.
Mohammed Moubdii, minister delegate to the head of government for civil service and the modernization of administration, said during a seminar held in Rabat that previous efforts have achieved several gains but have not led to the desired results which require the adoption of a national strategy to fight corruption.
Moubdii said priority would be given to fighting corruption in health, security, justice and administrative sectors.
Transparency International issued a report earlier in the day revealing that 26 per cent of Moroccans believe that corruption in the country increased in 2015.
