The Minister for Economic Cooperation and Development of the Federal Republic of Germany, Ms. Svenja Schulze, and the Minister of Foreign Affairs, African Cooperation and Moroccan Expatriates, Mr. Nasser Bourita, held talks by videoconference, for the first time this March 24, 2022.

This meeting has enshrined the shared interest to further intensify bilateral development cooperation in a spirit of global partnership and mutual respect.

Germany and Morocco are bound by a long-standing development cooperation, marked by trust in the areas of economic development and employment, sustainable development, climate, renewable energy and water. Thus, Germany supports the reforms undertaken by the Kingdom of Morocco over the past two decades, which have led to significant political, economic and social progress under the leadership of HM King Mohammed VI.

The two Ministers praised the great potential of bilateral relations, reaffirming their shared resolve to give them an additional impetus to meet the challenges and requirements of the post-Covid recovery.

Regarding development cooperation, the two parties agreed, among other things, to resume the impetus of Morocco's New Development Model (NMD), while promoting post-Covid-19 economic recovery. Both Ministers welcomed the fact that German development cooperation aims to support, even more than before, the transition to renewable energy in Morocco.

They also praised the great potential of development cooperation between Morocco and Germany in the perspective of cooperation in promising sectors, such as the development of a green hydrogen economy, reaffirming the shared interest to intensify cooperation in this area in particular. To this end, bilateral development cooperation will use all instruments and accesses involving all stakeholders.

The German development cooperation also contributes to strengthening the strategic, multidimensional and privileged relationship between the European Union and Morocco.

In the coming weeks, the aim will be to develop a common vision of priorities and appropriate opportunities for the implementation of development cooperation in the coming years, with a view to deepening dialogue and cooperation and contributing to a joint effort to master future regional and global challenges.
