MOROCCO - IMF Mission Highlights Moroccan Central Bank's Transparency Practices

This mission, whose expertise and relevance of recommendations praised Bank Al-Maghrib, focused on examining the bank's transparency practices in five areas, relating to "Governance", "Policies", "Operations", "Results" of these policies, as well as "Institutional Relations" it maintains with national and international bodies, the central bank said in a statement published Monday on its website.

A report by the mission, available in English on the central bank's website, concluded that Bank Al-Maghrib's transparency practices, particularly in the fields of monetary policy and financial stability, are "comprehensive and thorough," allowing it to "enjoy a significant level of trust with its stakeholders," the statement said.

In addition, the mission underlined the soundness of transparency practices related to the Bank's governance framework, the same source added.

The recommendations, some of which have already been implemented, are part of the dynamics of improvement and reinforce the results obtained during the self-assessment conducted by the Bank, BAM explained.

The central bank explained that these recommendations concern, in particular, the publication of additional information or explanations of a pedagogical nature to improve understanding of the information already available on the Bank's Internet portal, notably on its legal status and its specificities, exchange rate policy or the management of foreign exchange reserves.
