Morocco, Guinea-Bissau Commence New Era of Economic Cooperation

Rabat – Morocco and Guinea-Bissau are beginning a new era of economic cooperation with the signing of four agreements related to industry, energy, tourism and transport, and logistics. 

Guinea-Bissau’s Minister of Foreign Affairs Suzi Carla Barbosa signed the agreements Wednesday with her Moroccan counterpart, Nasser Bourita, while on a working visit to Rabat. 

The visit follows the opening of the Moroccan Embassy in Bissau on Monday. “Opening up this diplomatic representation in our country shows the new dynamics of Guinea-Bissau’s proactive economic diplomacy,” the Bissau-Guinean Ministry of Foreign Affairs stated on Facebook

The West African country’s economic diplomacy in Morocco received another boost Wednesday as Bourita and Barbosa agreed to several mutually beneficial partnerships. 

The agreements

The first agreement is an industrial cooperation protocol, according to Morocco’s state media. It aims to promote cooperation by encouraging private initiatives and the exchange of experience and expertise in industrial policy.

Morocco and Guinea-Bissau’s second economic agreement concerns cooperation in the energy sector. The two countries intend to share experiences and know-how in the fields of electricity, renewable energies, and energy efficiency
