Rabat – King Mohammed VI is expected to travel to the Republic of Congo this weekend to sign a set of mining and trade agreements.
Morocco World News reported earlier in April that the King will take part at the International Blue Funds Conference. “I am pleased to announce the presence of the King of Morocco at the first Summit of Heads of State and Government of the Congo Basin Climate Commission and the Blue Basin Congo Fund,” said Congolese President Denis Sassou Nguesso.
Quoting Congo’s Minister of Environment, Nature Conservation, and Tourism, Arlette Soudan-Nonault, Bloomberg reported on April 26, that the King will land in Brazzaville this weekend to attend the summit to discuss Congo Basin Blue Fund on April 28.
The official added that the King will also meet with the president. Throughout his visit, the two country heads will sign several deals on mining, agriculture, fishing, health and transport.
The summit will convene 16 African leaders who will discuss the implementation of the Blue Congo Basin Fund, a project conceived in part at the COP22 in Marrakech to provide support to the countries of the Congo Basin to create a “shift in their economies from reliance on forest-based resources to much greater use of renewable river and water-based resources,” according to the Brazzaville Foundation for Peace and Conservation.
