The 21st annual conference of the International Association of Schools and Institutes of Administration (IASIA) opened, Monday in Rabat, under the sign: “The implementation and promotion of the principles of effective governance, to leave no one, nor any place aside”, with the participation of more than 65 countries from around the world.

Placed under the High Patronage of His Majesty King Mohammed VI, this event co-organized from July 25 to 29 by the Mohammed V University of Rabat (UM5), the IASIA, the Rabat City Council, United Cities and Local Governments of Africa (UCLG Africa) and its African Academy of Local Government (ALGA) highlights the 11 principles of effective governance for sustainable development, designed by the members of the United Nations Committee of Experts on Public Administration (UN-CEPA), approved and adopted by the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) in 2018.

This event, whose opening session was marked in particular by the presence of Minister of Higher Education, Scientific Research and Innovation, Abdellatif Miraoui, is meant to contribute to the enshrining of an effective governance based on the values and principles of non-discrimination, participation, subsidiarity and intergenerational equity, as a guarantee of the well-being of people, development of territories and sustainability of future generations.

On this occasion, president of the City Council of Rabat, Asmae Rhlalou, stressed that the promotion of good governance remains at the center of the priorities of the Kingdom of Morocco.
