HM the King, French President Inaugurate 'Al BORAQ' High Speed Train

HM King Mohammed VI and President of the French Republic, H.E. Emmanuel Macron, inaugurated, Thursday in Tangier, the "Al BORAQ" High Speed Train linking the cities of Tangier and Casablanca, a new project of its kind in the Maghreb and throughout the African continent, which has mobilized investments of around 22.9 billion dirhams.

Upon their arrival at the new Tangier-City station, the two Heads of State reviewed a detachment of the Royal Guard that made the honors, and were then greeted by the minister of Equipment, Transport, Logistics and Water, the secretary of State to the minister of Equipment, Transport, Logistics and Water, the representatives of the Arab Funds, of Abu Dhabi, Kuwait and Saudi Arabia which contributed to the achievement of the project, the members of the official delegation accompanying President Emmanuel Macron, the heads of French companies that participated in the completion of this project, and the director of the national railways Office as well as its managers.

Afterwards, HM the King and the French President went to the station ticket office where two authentic tickets were given to the two Heads of State as a symbolic gesture. The Sovereign and his illustrious guest then headed for the central platform to take their place in the "Al BORAQ" High Speed Train, which led the two Heads of State to Rabat. As part of the efforts to revitalize and develop the national rail sector, undertaken since the accession of HM King Mohammed VI to the throne and worth around 70 billion dirhams, the "Al BORAQ" High Speed Train is the first stage of the master plan for the development of the network of lines for high-speed trains in Morocco (TGVM), a master development project planned, in the medium and long term, with the objective of responding to the evolution of mobility within the Kingdom.
