Johannes Hahn, Commissioner for European Neighbourhood Policy and Enlargement Negotiations will be in Rabat, Morocco tomorrow 14 September to discuss the way forward for EU – Morocco bilateral relations. Ahead of the visit Commissioner Hahn said: "I am looking forward to being in Rabat again. For the EU, Morocco is a major strategic partner in North Africa and the whole continent. We share many common challenges and opportunities and it is important to consider how we can move forward, step by step. While I am in Rabat, as a sign of EU commitment to support Morocco on its own priorities, I will sign EU funded programmes that will support small and medium enterprises, including start-ups working on innovation as well as social protection". Commissioner Hahn will meet with the country’s key political representatives including Head of the Government, Saadedine El Othmani, Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, Nasser Bourita and with the Minister of Economy and Finance, Mohammed Benchaaboun. Photos and videos of the mission will be available on EbS.
