Speaker of Canada’s Senate, George F. Furey has paid tribute to the leadership of King Mohammed VI and to the reforms engaged in Morocco, leading to progress, inclusive and sustainable development.
Speaking to journalists following a meeting held Wednesday in Rabat with Foreign minister Nasser Bourita, Furey commended Morocco’s key role in the fight against global terror threat and commitment to human rights and gender equality.
Economic relations between Morocco and Canada are gaining momentum, said the Senate Speaker, underlining the huge joint business opportunities offered in the sectors of agriculture, aerospace, education, infrastructure and green technologies.
Thanks to its close ties with Europe and Africa, the North African Kingdom can serve as a gateway for Canadian companies to expand across the African continent, said Mr. Furey.
He also conferred separately with speakers of the House of Representatives and of the House of Councilors.
Talks focused on parliamentary cooperation between the two countries’ legislative institutions, joint political dialogue and consultation on regional and international issues of common interest.
