VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:44 Oct 13, 2021 In accordance with the Millennium Challenge Act of 2003, as amended, the Millennium Challenge Corporation is publishing a summary, justification, and full text of the proposed First Amendment to Millennium Challenge Compact between the United States of America, acting through the Millennium Challenge Corporation, and the Kingdom of Morocco. Representatives of the United States Government and the Kingdom of Morocco plan to conclude the Amendment before the end of 2021. Authority: 22 U.S.C. 7708 (i) (2). SUMMARY: Data Users Advisory Committee; Notice of Meeting and Agenda Jkt 256001 Dated: October 7, 2021. Thomas G. Hohenthaner, Acting VP/General Counsel and Corporate Secretary. Summary of First Amendment to Millennium Challenge Compact With the Kingdom of Morocco The Board of Directors of the Millennium Challenge Corporation (‘‘MCC’’) has approved an amendment (the ‘‘Amendment’’) to the existing US $450,000,000, five-year Millennium Challenge Compact between the United States of America, acting through MCC, and the Kingdom of Morocco (the ‘‘Compact’’). Background The Compact was signed on November 30, 2015 and entered into force on June 30, 2017. The Compact aims to contribute to economic growth and investment in Morocco through two projects supporting Moroccan government priorities: The Education and Training for Employability Project and the Land Productivity Project. Scope of the Amendment MCC proposes to extend the term of the Compact for an additional nine months until March 31, 2023, and to PO 00000 Frm 00079 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 provide additional funding of up to $10,500,000. The term extension is necessary to mitigate implementation delays due to the COVID–19 pandemic and to complete Compact projects as originally contemplated. The proposed additional funding will be used to cover additional program administration and related oversight costs associated with extending the Compact’s term. Justification for the Amendment Notice of First Amendment to Compact With the Kingdom of Morocco [FR Doc. 2021–22297 Filed 10–13–21; 8:45 am] 57201 In March 2020, the Government of Morocco imposed an almost complete lockdown and border closure for three months after the first COVID–19 cases were identified in Morocco. The offices of the Government of Morocco’s accountable entity were closed from March to June 2020, limiting staff to telework. Construction works were halted for at least three months, as were all in-person activities such as public consultations, trainings, and other technical assistance activities. Travel restrictions and border closures disrupted global supply chains and access to necessary supplies and equipment. Although some restrictions were eased during the summer of 2020, renewed COVID–19 outbreaks during the fall and winter led to targeted lockdowns in several Moroccan cities. Lockdowns and restrictions have now been imposed intermittently for over a year, including a lengthy national curfew and a suspension of air travel with over 50 countries, including most of Europe. These restrictions have only recently eased. Extending the Compact term will maximize long-term results and the return on investment by assuring the completion of most key activities and increasing the likelihood that the Government of Morocco will successfully adopt and implement the reform elements of the Compact and establish a more solid foundation for sustaining these reforms post-Compact. The additional MCC funding is necessary for and will be used to support oversight and other administrative functions during the additional nine months of the Compact term. First Amendment to Millennium Challenge Compact Between the United States of America, Acting Through the Millennium Challenge Corporation and the Kingdom of Morocco First Amendment to Millennium Challenge Compact This FIRST AMENDMENT TO MILLENNIUM CHALLENGE COMPACT (this ‘‘Amendment’’), is made by and between the United States of America, E:\FR\FM\14OCN1.SGM 14OCN1
