Morocco wants to diversify partners within and outside EU
Bourita, who made the statement following talks with Hungarian peer Peter Szijjarto, noted that Rabat looks at Hungary as a platform to access the Eastern European market.
In this respect, Bourita said Morocco was invited to attend a meeting of the Visegrad group which, in addition to Hungary, brings together Poland, Czech Republic and Slovakia.
Morocco and Hungary also agreed to hold their joint commission this year, on the sidelines of which a meeting between Morocco’s employers association (CGEM) and its Hungarian counterpart will be held to promote investments.
During his visit, Hungary’s foreign minister signed agreements covering diplomacy, customs, culture, education as well as the mutual recognition of Covid-19 certificates including vaccine documents.
The Moroccan official also thanked his Hungarian peer for his country’s steady position in support of Morocco’s territorial integrity.
