Morocco has announced that the commune of Guerguerat will soon be connected to water and electricity networks. Other infrastructure is planned to boost development in this rural locality.
Like other cities in the Sahara, the kingdom intends to increase investments in Guerguerat, a city on the border with Mauritania. To do this, the authorities are stepping up actions to bring the populations of the region out of isolation.
On the sidelines of the celebration of the 46th anniversary of the Green March, several announcements were made. This mainly involves the launch of projects to connect this border post to Moroccan water and electricity distribution networks. Thus, Guerguerat will be supplied with electricity from the thermal station of Bir Guendouz, the last urban locality before this border post.
In addition to these vital facilities, the commune will have a commercial and distribution area and a bank branch (Al-Barid Bank) to enable nationals and foreigners to conduct banking transactions in this remote corner of the desert.
