“The new cooperation also concerns Moroccan and Canadian companies for support in the business world in Canada, Morocco and even in Africa,” he specified.
In a statement to Maghreb Arab Press (MAP), Hanczakowski said that “this partnership will allow the National Bank of Canada to offer its customers a privileged link with a Moroccan bank and will allow Attijariwafa bank customers wishing to settle in Canada to benefit from a package for settlement in good conditions.”
Meanwhile, the first vice-president of corporate and insurance management for the Canadian group, Stephane Achard, encouraged Canadian companies to collaborate with Morocco.

He concluded that the partnership will help these companies in their quest but also welcome Moroccan customers wishing to do business in the North American country.
