French President Emmanuel Macron Thursday attended the inauguration in Morocco of a high-speed railway line that boasts the fastest journey times in Africa or the Arab world.Morocco has heralded the $2.4 billion project as a key step in modernizing the country after weathering the Arab Spring uprisings born largely out of discontent over inequality and poor public services.Macron was accompanied by the heads of French companies involved in the project, including Alstom, which supplied France's famous TGV trains, the Ansaldo-Ineo group and the Colas Rail-Egis Rail consortium. The president is visiting Morocco four days after King Mohammad took part in World War I centenary commemorations in France.
