Attended by former diplomats and experts on African issues, this conference was an opportunity to analyze the evolution of bilateral relations between Morocco and Nigeria from a  strategic point of view and to explore their development prospects taking into account Morocco’s new strategic positioning in Sub-Saharan Africa and the potential weight of Nigeria at regional and international level.
