According to a statement released by several Spanish media, a maritime route between Tenerife and Agadir will be available soon, as announced by Carlos Alson, president of the Tenerife Island Council, on Thursday.
Alonso, accompanied by Tenerife’s Minister of Foreign Affairs, Delia Herrera, traveled to Morocco to reinforce the friendly relationship between the Canary Islands and Morocco, and, in particular, with the city of Agadir, which has collaborated with Tenerife on many sector project.
Alonso is confident that this new route will strengthen the islands’ relations with Morocco.
Alonso toured the port in Agadir, explaining his intention to establish a maritime route for the transport of goods and passengers, based on the study he carried out three years ago in the Port Authority of Santa Cruz de Tenerife.
“It seemed like a dream and we realized it. Tenerife already has 2 airlines with Casablanca and Agadir. Now, a new step has been taken by the Island Council of Tenerife to make the Tenerife-Agadir maritime route a reality, opening up new opportunities!” tweeted Delia Herrera.
Alonso met with representatives of strategic economic sectors and the mayor of Agadir, with whom he analyzed the cooperation projects between both territories.
“It is about updating the data and defining together with the Moroccan authorities the type and conditions [transport goods, location, etc.] of line,” the president said.
The friendly relationship between both territories has consolidated and strengthened relations between the Canary Islands and Morocco, specifically the Souss Massa region.
