"We will give more impetus to the economic relations between Bulgaria and Morocco as early as the next months. Trade volume in goods exceeds 250 million euro in the areas of construction, pharmacy, and food products."

In the presence of the two Heads of Government, an Administrative Agreement was signed in addition to the Agreement on Social Security between Bulgaria and Morocco.

"I hope this agreement, which we signed today, will give a large boost to business relations in the next months," the Bulgarian Prime Minister pointed out. As an example of enhancing these relations, the Prime Minister  mentioned the two economic forums in Rabat and Casablanca that took place during his official visit to Morocco.

 

In his statement, Bulgarian Prime Minister Borissov underlined that in the field of security cooperation, especially on terrorism and migration, the two countries have been working hard for several months and the partnership will continue to unfold in the future. "We have also presented the capabilities of the Bulgarian military-industrial complex," added Prime Minister Boyko Borissov and invited his Moroccan counterpart to visit our country at the beginning of next year.

 

"We have declared our common political will, as well as similar positions on a number of regional and international issues. You have  expressed your sincere desire for further development of our bilateral relations," said Prime Minister Saadeddine Othmani. He noted that at the end of this Bulgarian visit the two countries have a roadmap for the development of bilateral relations in the different areas of cooperation.
