As a part of the study program “Global competitiveness and positioning of Morocco in the globalized system”, IRES organised on July 20th, 2010 a study day tackling the issue of “Morocco-Africa relationships: current achievements and prospects”, to which a panel of national and international experts contributed.

 

This study day consisted of two sessions, both dealing with the weight of the African continent in the global geostrategic equilibrium, and the reality of Morocco’s economic and financial cooperation with Africa.

 

In this scientific event, important issues were discussed in depth including the strengths and weaknesses of the current positioning of Morocco in Africa and its potential improvement. The event also revolved around the issue of strategic measures that can encourage the emergence of a renovated partnership which will promote the development of the Kingdom’s relationships beyond western Africa.
