CDT represented Morocco at the meeting in Chile's capital city.
Rabat – Representatives of Morocco’s Democratic Confederation of Labor (CDT) met with officials from Chilean trade unions on January 22 to discuss bilateral cooperation in Santiago, Chile.
Touria Lahrach, the coordinator of the CDT parliamentary group in the House of Councilors and a member of the union executive committee, represented Morocco during the meeting.
The Federation of Petroleum Workers of Chile (Fenatrapech) hosted the meeting, during which both parties called for stronger relations between unions in Morocco and Chile and for the promotion of cooperation and bilateral exchanges.
The meeting comes on the heels of a cultural and academic agreement penned in Temuco, Chile earlier this week.
Morocco’s Mohammed VI Center for the Dialogue of Civilizations in Coquimbo and the University of La Frontera in Temuco agreed to promote cooperation between the two institutions.
The institutions intend to carry out joint research activities, promote exchange programs to researchers and post-graduate students, and promote co-publications and exchange educational material.
Morocco and Chile have long enjoyed warm relations, with Chile being an important backer of Morocco in the Western Sahara conflict.
The two countries regularly cooperate in the economic, cultural, and political realms, and the developments in Temuco and Santiago are the latest fruits of this friendship.
