Rabat – French Prime Minister Edouard Philippe is expected to pay a visit to Morocco on Wednesday to co-chair the work of the 13th high level Morocco-France meeting.
This is Philippe’s first trip in the Maghreb since his appointment by President Emmanuel Macron.
‘‘The purpose of this meeting is to strengthen the bilateral cooperation in several economic and social domains, particularly those related to education training [and] to business climates and innovation,’’ said French government in a statement.
The French PM will be accompanied by a delegation of ten ministers. Ten bilateral cooperation agreements are expected to be signed regarding different sectors: economy, culture, and social projects.
Philippe and El Othmani will also chair the opening of the French-Moroccan economic forum, which will be marked by the participation of 150 French and Moroccan companies.
Philippe has visited Morocco twice. In 2014, he had participated in the MedDays , and two years later he came back as a mayor of Le Havre to sign a memorandum of understanding with his counterpart in Tangiers.
