The current government is still receiving a group of criticism from professional unions in the transportation sector, after its failure to take serious measures regarding the increase in fuel prices recorded during the recent period.
The price of a liter of gasoline recorded an increase of about 76 cents, and an increase in the price of petrol by about 52 cents, which are numbers that could rise, after the absence of monitoring and the principle of fair competition.
In this regard, the official government spokesman, Mustafa Paytas, said today, Thursday, that the government is determined to protect professionals from the fuel crisis.
Paytas stressed that the government places the issue of increasing the purchasing power of Moroccans at the center of its priorities, highlighting that the government has taken a number of measures and is not evading responsibility.
The official spokesman for the government stated that the government directed new support to transport professionals, as well as allocating 10 billion dirhams for production chains to ensure the provision of vegetables and fruits to citizens, in addition to tax cuts at the import level, which are among the measures aimed at supporting families and reducing the level of inflation.
The Ministry of Transport and Logistics had announced, on Tuesday, the launch of the registration process to obtain additional support for road transport professionals.
A statement by the Ministry stated that, according to the decision taken by the government to support road transport professionals, the registration process will be launched to obtain additional support for professionals, starting on Friday, September 8, 2023, through the online platform mouakaba.transport.gov.ma.
