He said the visit to the southern provinces “confirms the strategy of motivation by Morocco of the development of these regions” and crowns “several months of cooperation with the Moroccan embassy in Warsaw.
“The purpose of the mission was to select top Polish companies, which are innovative and interested in the southern provinces,” he added, stressing that apart from the visits, “we were able to see again much more than we hoped to see”.
“It was for us a very strong moment and everything we saw really exceeded our expectations in these regions,” he said.
“Now we know that the southern provinces are the center of business and investment,” he said, recalling that companies have already signed investment declarations in January and “we are confident that cooperation with our local colleagues, including the Regional Investment Centers, which are very dynamic, will allow to host direct investment in the southern provinces”.
Director of export in the Polish company “Chimide Polska” and member of this economic mission, Lidia Mielnicka, welcomed the strengthening of relations between Morocco and Poland, noting that recent visits by members of the delegation to Laayoune and Dakhla have enabled them to assess the large economic opportunities and investments in these cities
