A report by Morocco World News reported that the Chamber of Commerce supported by companies from the two countries, will offer a number of services to businesses, including investment and trade information and a wide-range of relevant contacts.
The chamber of commerce will also serve as a source of reference and resources for Moroccan companies in Greece and Greek companies in Morocco.
The Greek-Moroccan Chamber of Entrepreneurial Cooperation, founded and chaired by Rubina Markopoulou, will have the prerogative to collaborate with similar and counterpart organizations in Morocco and Greece.
The Moroccan Embassy in Greece revealed that the creation of the Chamber and the projects’ approval from the Greek General Register of Commerce happened more than a year of working toward its formation.
The embassy noted that the initiative was carried out despite challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Traditionally, relations between Morocco and Greece have been positive given that both countries are members of the Francophonie organization and the Union of the Mediteranian.
In mid-January of this year, Greek Minister of Foreign Affairs Nikos Dendias visited Morocco to discuss the countries’ common interests and bilateral cooperation.
Furthermore, the Minister highlighted Morocco’s critical role in the Middle East and North African region noting that Greece recognized the constructive role of Morocco in the Arab world and in North Africa.
Morocco’s exports include a diverse number of products mainly from the agricultural sector.
