Hungary builds stronger relations with Morocco

Hungary-Morocco ties are developing well in the areas of trade, the economy, tourism, education and culture. Ties have also been boosted thanks to a new direct flight between the two countries

During talks with his counterpart Habib el-Malki in Morocco, Speaker of Parliament László Kövér highlighted that this year marks the 60th anniversary of Hungary-Morocco diplomacy.

The House Speaker said that Hungary-Morocco ties are developing well in the areas of trade, the economy, tourism, education and culture. Ties have also been boosted thanks to a new direct flight between the two countries.

According to MTI, the two parliaments have just signed a cooperation pact and the president of the upper house and members of the Hungarian-Moroccan friendship committee are scheduled to visit Hungary this year.

Kövér noted that his counterpart expressed interest in the Visegrad Group and said he would further consolidate his interest with Slovak, Czech and Polish partners at the June meeting of speakers.

The House Speaker said Morocco was considered as “a true friend of Hungary” and a key partner in north Africa and the Arab region.

Kövér also met Prime Minister Saad-Eddine el-Othmani, and they discussed boosting economic and trade relations and ways to tap opportunities in cultural and tourism ties.
