Moroccan minister of economy & finance Mohamed Benchaaboun conferred on Monday in Brussels, with European Commissioner for Economy Paolo Gentiloni on Morocco-EU partnership and on rules of origin, which need to be reviewed to bolster the Kingdom’s exports.
Talks between the two sides also tackled the issue of taxation. “Important decisions will be taken in this regard by the EU in the coming days”, said Benchaaboun.
“We have obviously discussed partnership as a whole and the means of strengthening it for the benefit of both parties”, said the minister, adding he reviewed with Gentiloni several subjects.
The two sides agreed to continue dialogue with a view to building and reinforcing a relationship of trust that will benefit the Moroccan and EU economies.
The EU has extensive ties with Morocco in trade, political and security matters and the North African Kingdom is the Union’s major trading partner in this region.
