    Background: ON MONDAY NEAR KSAR ES SOUK IN EAST MOROCCO, KING HASSAN II OPENED AN IMPORTANT NEW DAM, THE SIXTH TO BE COMPLETED SINCE INDEPENDENCE 15 YEARS AGO.

    IT WILL GUARANTEE REGULAR IRRIGATION OF ABOUT 19,000 HECTARES (47,000 ACRES) ALONG THE ZIZ VALLEY AND IN THE TAFILALET OASIS NEAT THE ALGERIAN FRONTIER.

    A CURIOUS FEATURE OF THE PROJECT IS THAT IT HAS BEEN FINANCED ENTIRELY BY A LEVY ON SUGAR. MOROCCANS EAT MORE SUGAR PER HEAD THAN ANY OTHER PEOPLE IN THE WORLD, ACCORDING TO ESTIMATES.
