RABAT

Morocco will set up a new seawater desalination factory in the southern city of Chtouka to meet increasing demand for drinking water, as reported on Thursday. The project, which will serve the southern region on the kingdom, will be built with nearly 400 million U.S. dollars. The project will be implemented by partnership between the Moroccan government and private operators and will be ready by 2020.
