Rabat – Morocco and China agreed, on Monday in Rabat, to boost the volume of their economic exchanges and reinforce economic cooperation.
This was announced on the occasion of the 55th anniversary of establishing diplomatic relations between the two countries, marked by the visit of Chinese foreign minister Wang Yi.
At a press briefing after a meeting with Moroccan peer Salaheddine Mezoua, Wang noted that economic exchanges between Morocco and China stood in 2012 at only 3 billion dollars, saying that there are huge prospects to develop.
China is willing to discuss a free trade agreement with Morocco when the right time comes, he said, adding that his country intends to promote a win-win cooperation in traditional sectors as phosphates, sea fisheries and mining resources.
Mezouar announced that a direct air route linking Casablanca to Beijing will be opened in 2014.
