Morocco, a Gateway for Canadian Exports to Africa- Ambassador

Ottawa’s Ambassador to Rabat Nathalie Dubé said that the North African kingdom offers a platform and a gateway to Canadian investments and exports towards the rest of Africa.

In a letter sent to the Moroccan chamber of commerce in Canada, Dubé praised diplomatic ties with Rabat and called on Canadian businessmen to grab the investment opportunities offered by Morocco in several fields, notably, agriculture, mines, infrastructure, defense, green technology and education.

The Canadian diplomat added that the location of Morocco at the crossroads between Africa and Europe enables it to play the role of a platform for Canada’s exports to Africa. Canada in turn offers Morocco a gateway to the larger north American market, she said.

Dubé also lauded the efforts led by Morocco’s chamber of commerce in Canada to build bridges between investors and businessmen as well as between institutions of the two countries.

The Moroccan chamber of commerce will organize a visit by Canadian businessmen to Morocco where they will meet with Moroccan counterparts to discuss partnership opportunities on March 11-19. The same delegation will take part in the international African development forum that will be held in Morocco on March 16-17.
