Morocco’s King Mohammed VI will pay an official visit to China as of Wednesday, May 11, 2016, at the invitation of the Chinese president, H.E. Xi Jinping.
During this visit, the Sovereign will hold talks with Chinese President, and meet with several Chinese senior officials. The two heads of state will also launch a strategic partnership between Morocco and China.
Referring to this official visit, the Chinese Ambassador to Morocco Sun Shuzhong said: “Since the establishment of diplomatic relations between China and Morocco in 1958, the two countries have always had good relations of cooperation and friendship.”
‘’The official visit, which HM King Mohammed VI will pay to China, heralds a new era of cooperation between Rabat and Beijing and will strengthen the strategic, comprehensive and exemplary partnership between the two countries,’’ added Sun Shuzhong.
The Chinese ambassador also called for the promotion of cultural exchanges, especially among young people, saying that his country has set up two “Confucius” institutes in Morocco and a Chinese center which is still under construction.
Relations between China and Morocco have been developing steadily and smoothly, yielding fruitful results. In the political field, the Moroccan-Chinese relationship is marked by frequent high-level exchanges between the two sides, mutual trust, and understanding.
In the economic and commercial fields, cooperation between the two countries is gaining momentum, as China has become one of Morocco’s major trade partners. The mutually beneficial cooperation set by the two countries is growing rapidly in the fields of fisheries, telecom, manufacturing, industries, technologies, public works, and road construction.
The expanding cultural cooperation is also contributing to the rapprochement and entente between the two peoples. Last year, over ten thousand Moroccans visited China for either business or tourism purposes. The number of Chinese tourists to Morocco is also increasing. A growing number of Moroccan students have started learning Chinese in a bid to foster the bridge of understanding between two countries and enhance further their cultural exchange.
