Agriculture: Morocco, UK Examine Prospects for Development of Bilateral Cooperation

Meknes  – The prospects for the development of bilateral cooperation in the agricultural sector were the focus of a meeting held Tuesday in Meknes between the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries, Rural Development and Water and Forests, Mohamed Sadiki, and the Minister of State for Biosecurity, Marine and Rural Affairs, Lord Richard Benyon, on the sidelines of the 15th edition of the International Agricultural Exhibition in Morocco (SIAM).

The discussions focused on cooperation between the two countries, as well as future prospects for developing trade in the agricultural sector, in light of the current context marked by the geopolitical and climate crises, said Sadiki in a statement to MAP TV channel M24 after the meeting.

The exchanges were also an occasion to discuss aspects and opportunities to simplify and improve procedures for exporting Moroccan food products to the UK, as well as the prospects for improving and intensifying these exchanges in a win-win approach.

For his part, Benyon said he was honored by the choice of the United Kingdom as the guest of honor of this edition, highlighting the importance of British companies that took part in SIAM.

Benyon also noted the importance of this event in deepening relations between Morocco and the United Kingdom.
