Morocco, Republic of Congo Sign 14 Cooperation Agreements
Morocco and the Republic of the Congo signed 14 cooperation agreements during a ceremony in Brazzaville chaired by King Mohammed VI and Congo’s President Denis Sassou N’Guesso.
The ceremony was held during the King’s friendship and working visit to Brazzaville, where he had attended on Sunday the first Summit of Heads of State & Government of Climate Commission of Congo Basin and Blue Fund for Congo Basin.
The agreements, signed after the two Heads of State held tête-à-tête talks, provide for creating propitious conditions for investors from both countries to carry out joint projects and preventing tax evasion.
The agreements also include fisheries and aquaculture as well as the construction of a landing site in the Republic of the Congo.
Morocco also promised to help Congo in the fields of agriculture, education, logistics, health training, energy, tourism, mining, and vocational training.
In keeping with Morocco’s south-south cooperation policy, King Mohammed VI and President Denis Sassou N’Guesso chaired the launch of construction works of a landing point worth 30 million dirhams at the Yoro Port.
The new facility stretches over a surface area of 1.7 hectare of which 2,250 square meters will serve for fisheries conditioning and marketing purposes.
The landing point, to be ready in two years, will help develop the fisheries sector in the country and improve the living conditions of local fishermen.
