According to the Moroccan official, this law also reaffirms commitments related to the protection of economic, social, and cultural rights for the benefit of different categories of the population with the aim of achieving inclusive social justice.

The 8th International Parliamentary Forum on Social Justice focuses on the correlation and complementarity between decent work and sustainable development under international and national standards and Goal 8 of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) which aims to promote sustained, inclusive, and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment and decent work for all.
