Preparations for Marhaba Operation Began on May 3 – FM

Rabat – Preparations for the Marhaba operation began on May 3, at a meeting of the national transit commission chaired by the Ministry of the Interior, Nasser Bourita, Minister of Foreign Affairs, African Cooperation and Moroccan Expatriates, told the House of Representatives on Monday.

When the joint Moroccan-Spanish commission in charge of the transit operation was established on May 17, coordination with Spain began, according to Bourita, who was responding to oral questions about the “Marhaba” operation. The two parties are collaborating on issues relating to fluidity, traffic, support, communication, and health monitoring, she added.

The Minister emphasized that changes, both at the international level and with regard to the Moroccan community abroad, have meant that the organization of this operation takes place all year long, recalling that this was stressed in the Royal Speech of August 20. The Minister noted that the Marhaba operation is unique of its kind and requires certain measures to be guaranteed.

He highlighted the strength of the bonds joining the Moroccan community created abroad with the home country and added that the organization of this operation confronts some challenges that we endeavor to overcome from year to year.

The “Marhaba” operation last year, which he described as extraordinary, was responsible for the 3 million MREs that entered the country last year, an increase of 4 percent over 2019.
