The employers of Morocco and Israel organized, this Monday, January 4, several virtual meetings to discuss initiatives around the revitalization of economic cooperation between the two countries. These are the first contacts between the General Confederation of Moroccan Enterprises (CGEM) and the Manufacturers Association of Israel (MAI) since the normalization of relations.
During these first meetings, CGEM and MAI were represented respectively by their first managers, Chakib Alj, president of CGEM, and Ron Tomer, president of the Manufacturers Association of Israel (MAI). Mehdi Tazi, vice-president of CGEM and Dan Cataviras, general manager of the foreign trade division within the Mai were also present during these virtual exchanges.
These exchanges focused on the revival of economic and trade cooperation based on a win-win partnership and on sectors vital for the development of investments and co-investments. This meeting between the Moroccan and Israeli private sectors comes a few days after a virtual meeting between the Moroccan Minister of Industry and the Israeli Minister of the Economy. The two officials exchanged views on the prospects for industrial cooperation between the two countries.
It should be noted that the relaunch of relations could be strengthened by the inauguration on January 16 of commercial flights Casablanca-Tel Aviv, at the rate of four weekly frequencies.
