Ahannoush discusses with the European Commissioner the creation of partnerships and the strengthening of economic and social relations
On Thursday in Rabat, Prime Minister Aziz Ahannoush held bilateral talks with European Commissioner for Neighborhood Policy and Enlargement Oliver Farrelly, who is on a working visit to Morocco.
In a message to the Prime Minister, it was announced that this bilateral meeting was an occasion for both the European official and Ahannouche to highlight the importance of the dynamism that has characterized relations between Morocco and the European Commission over the past three years, leading to the signing of a number of agreements that fall within the scope of the recommendations of the new development model of the Kingdom and meet the priorities set by King Mohammed VI, and the government implements them, especially in the areas of social protection, water, and agriculture.
These talks, which were attended by the European Union’s Ambassador to Morocco, Patricia Humpart, provided the officials with an opportunity to consider various aspects of the partnership between the Kingdom and the European Commission in light of the opportunities available to accelerate and expand economic and trade exchanges.
The Prime Minister said in a statement that the European official’s visit, the second of its kind in less than a year to Morocco, shows the European Commission’s interest in making Morocco a strategic partner.
