In March 2019, both countries signed further 12 agreements during the first session of the High Joint Committee between the two countries.
The two countries reinforced their partnership through the signing of a Memorandum of understanding (MoU) in the poultry industry in Kigali, on October 2.

Maghreb Arab Press(MAP) reported that the singing of this memorandum “stems from the importance given by the two countries to bilateral cooperation in the field of agriculture, which witnessed a turning point since the launch of the agricultural partnership program between Morocco and Rwanda during the visit HM King Mohammed VI to Rwanda in 2016.”
