On July 13th, 1976, the Kingdom of Morocco and Australia established their diplomatic relations.

Morocco’s Ambassador to Australia, Karim Medrek, revealed that relations between the Kingdom of Morocco and Australia are currently witnessing a distinct dynamic.

In an interview with Australian news site Vibe Media, the Moroccan diplomat expressed his conviction that these relations will continue to develop in the coming years, given that the two friendly countries, despite the geographical distance, share the same position on various international issues.

And because the year 2021 marks the 45th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Morocco and Australia, the diplomat stated that “this anniversary comes as an occasion to reflect on the evolution of this relationship and how to bring our two friendly countries closer as these relations are, currently, undergoing an excellent momentum, marked by a common willingness of both countries to favour rapprochement and to seize the existing opportunities of cooperation, particularly in the economic field.”

Medrek also pointed out that the inauguration of an Australian embassy in Morocco in 2017 was a tangible indication of Australia’s desire to strengthen cooperation with the Kingdom, explaining that a dynamic political dialogue is underway with Australian authorities on multilateral cooperation and global issues such as peace, security and countering terrorism.

On economic cooperation, Medrek stressed that Morocco and Australia wish to enhance economic exchange between them, given the pioneering role that the two countries play in their regions, as well as the large number of investment opportunities offered in many sectors of interest.
