The events and catering sector and the amusement and playgrounds sector have just benefited from a programme contract to relaunch their activities. Two contracts were indeed signed today on the sidelines of the 10th working meeting of the Economic Intelligence Committee (CVE).
In view of the negative effects of the health crisis caused by Covid-19 on certain vulnerable branches of activity, the CVE has signed two programme contracts for the revival of the events and catering sector and the amusement and playgrounds sector.
The first agreement concerns caterers, rental companies for technical equipment related to events (sound, light, video, etc.), rental companies for spaces dedicated to events (halls, marquees, etc.), rental companies for furniture dedicated to events and service providers for events. The programme contract is signed, on the State side, by the Ministries of the Economy, Finance and Administrative Reform, Industry, Trade, Green and Digital Economy and Employment and Professional Integration. The private sector is represented by the CGEM, the GPBM and the Federation of Moroccan Chambers of Commerce, Industry and Services.
The actors concerned by the second programme-contract are the companies operating in indoor play areas (Ice rink, children’s play areas, video and automatic game rooms), those active in outdoor play areas (Skate-park area, Karting, mini-golf, archery, merry-go-rounds and water parks, accro-branche spaces and circuits) as well as animal and zoological parks. The signatory parties to this programme contract representing the State are :
- -The Ministry of the Interior
- -The Ministry of Economy, Finance and Administrative Reform ;
- -The Ministry of Agriculture, Maritime Fisheries, Rural Development and Water and Forestry;
- -The Ministry of Industry, Trade, Green and Digital Economy ;
- -The Ministry of Labour and Professional Insertion
- The private sector is represented by the CGEM and the GPBM.
Through a panoply of economic and financial support measures and other cross-cutting measures, these two programme-contracts aim to boost activities in these two sectors and preserve the fabric of the companies operating in them and its corollary, employment. The steering of these programme-contracts is ensured by a monitoring committee, composed of each of the signatories representing the State and the private sector. Periodic meetings at two-month intervals have been decided upon to ensure the effective implementation of the agreed measures and to assess their contribution to the achievement of the expected results.
