Ghana’s Ambassador to Morocco H.E. Samuel Jojo Effah-Broni has opined that all the major cities in Morocco have been well-positioned in terms of infrastructure, clean botanical environment and energy with a strong manufacturing subsector of the economy made to drive industrial development.
He also lauded the Moroccan government for keeping the country clean.
Speaking in an interview with journalists at the Ghana Embassy in Rabat, Morocco, the Ambassador cited the manufacturing of cars, parts of aeronautics, and other notable products that were reasonably gaining popularity as global brands as a few of the examples differentiating Morocco from other African countries.
That notwithstanding, he said Morocco, through the South-South Cooperation, has made the development of Africa a priority adding, “Morocco allowing outward-looking into Africa development”.
He cited an instance where Morocco has been helping Ghana to establish wind turbines for energy development to enhance the power supply in Ghana.
He, therefore, called on Ghanaians to begin looking at the transport sector, airline industry and rail
development as potential areas for collaboration between Ghana and Morocco.
The banking sector in Morocco, he observed, has been properly regulated by authorities to maintain sanity while the use of technology to provide services in the digital world has also played an instrumental role in expanding the economy of Morocco.
He pointed out that every day new things were happening in the country to show their level of commitment to drive sustainable development and added that traders operating in both countries must begin to build consented mutual trust in significant areas of cooperation and collaboration.
“If you discover what their needs are and if you have the solution, why not”, H.E. Effah-Broni indicated.
He confirmed that there have always been plans to support Ghanaian and Moroccan businesses following bilateral co-operations signed and enhanced trade relations being promoted to increase trade volumes in the two countries.
On human resource development, Ambassador Effah-Broni, said Ghana and Morocco have developed a joint scholarship program to train Ghanaian students in Morocco.
The program, he noted, commenced in 2002 and has since produced professionals and quality human resources capable of manning various sectors of the Ghanaian economy.
Currently, the Ambassador explained, there are over two hundred Ghanaian students studying in Morocco through the scholarship program.
