President Macron says he will visit Morocco in October
French President Emmanuel Macron said he will pay a visit to Morocco in late October, after wrapping up a visit to Algiers in which no major investment agreement was signed.
Macron made the statement while talking to a group of festival goers at Touquet Music Beach.
Macron last visited Morocco in November 2018 to inaugurate Africa’s highest speed train together with King Mohammed VI.
France remains the first investor in Morocco with French automotive giant such as Renault and PSA – part of Stellantis- operating major plants in Tangier and Kenitra.
But France has been unseated over the last few years by Spain as Morocco’s first trading partner.
Morocco expects from France to adopt a bolder position in support of its sovereignty over the Sahara, following the example of Spain and the US.
