The Moroccan Ambassador to Ghana, Nezha Alaoui M’hammdi, has given the assurance that the bilateral relations between Ghana and Morocco will further be strengthened to enable the two countries to benefit from each other.

In line with this, Morocco and Ghana will continue to share experiences in critical areas of the economy such as agriculture, housing, tourism and education.

The Moroccan Ambassador to Ghana, who stated this in an interview to commemorate the celebration of the National Day of the Kingdom of Morocco, which falls today, said dialogue between the two countries would lead to greater mutual understanding.

“We believe that only mutual co-operation can develop confidence, leading to greater understanding for growth and development,” she said. She stated that her country’s ties with Ghana began about 50 years ago when the two countries collaborated to fight colonialism and attain independence.

By appointing an ambassador to Ghana, the King of Morocco, according to Nezha M’hammdi, was committed to strengthening Moroco’s relationship with Ghana.

According to the envoy, Moroccan investors have a number of investments in Ghana, which have resulted in the establishment of financial institutions such as the Bank of Africa and Saham Insurance.

She also said a Moroccan construction firm, Addoha Group, had signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the government of Ghana to construct 10,000 social housing units over seven years, valued at 250 million euros.

To ensure essential materials needed for the construction of the social housing units are made in Ghana, Nezha M’hammdi stated that Addoha Group had begun the construction of a cement factory at Tema, valued at 60 million euros.
