Washington – Morocco has “all assets” necessary to be a “credible partner” to accompany US investments in Africa, said on Thursday in Washington, Meriem Bensalah Chaqroun, head of Moroccan employers association (CGEM).
Thanks to its unique geographical position and the vital role of King Mohammed VI in promoting south-south cooperation, Morocco has all necessary assets to accompany US investments in Africa, Bensalah Chaqroun told MAP in the sidelines of the US-Africa Leaders Summit (August 4-6, Washington DC).
In Addition to the Kingdom’s strategic position, Morocco’s distinctive approach is mainly based on the Sovereign’s concrete actions in Africa, notably his vision in favour of “south-south integration and triangular cooperation with the American continent, particularly the United States, the chairman of the General Confederation of Moroccan Enterprises said.
This genuine approach was highlighted in the joint statement which wrapped up the summit that brought together King Mohammed VI and President Obama last November in Washington, she added.
This summit was followed by a royal tour in Africa, where no less than 91 agreements have been signed, underlining the “strong signals “of pragmatism shown by Moroccan entrepreneurs who are already present in several African countries in support of large-scale infrastructure projects.
