April 7, 2011  -  TAP - The situation prevailing in the Middle East and North Africa makes Maghreb economic integration "more than ever necessary" said Wednesday in Washington International Monetary Fund (IMF) Director General Dominique Strauss Kahn, reports Moroccan website Atlasinfo.
"Tunisia, Algeria and Morocco have absolutely everything to gain in working together and joining energies as part of a regional economic integration, " Mr. Strauss Khan affirmed at a meeting with Arab media representatives accredited in Washington.
He stressed, in this context, that Maghreb economic integration represents certainly a way to boost growth which actually is the only real way for job creation, regretting that, for historical reasons, this integration is a long time materializing. "The benefits of such an integration are so great that there is no reason to choose or even hesitate", IMF top official declared.
