Morocco-U.S. meeting explores joint business opportunities

The huge business opportunities offered in Morocco thanks to the Free Trade Agreement (FTA) sealed with the United States and the African Continental Free Trade Area (CFTA) were at the center of talks held lately between Pdt of Moroccan Association of Exporters Hassan Sentissi El Idrissi and U.S. Consul General to Casablanca Lawrence M. Randolph.

During the meeting, Mr. Sentissi said Morocco looks forward to benefiting from U.S. technology and know-how particularly in seawater desalination to meet the water needs of several regions in the Kingdom.

He also called for the setting up a joint shipping company to increase further trade exchanges between the two countries and take advantage of opportunities offered by the FTA.

For his part, the American Consul General urged Moroccan businessmen to participate in the Investment Summit “Select USA 2022”, due in Washington June 26-29.

Select USA is a governmental program led by the U.S. Department of Commerce that focuses on facilitating job-creating business investment into the United States and raising awareness of the critical role that economic development plays in the U.S. economy.

Since its inception, Select USA has facilitated more than $105 billion in investment, creating and/or retaining over 138,000 U.S. jobs.
