Rabat reiterated its willingness to continue supporting efforts for socioeconomic growth, notably in fields like security, fisheries, health, social developments, agriculture, and vocational training, according to Morocco’s FM.

Both nations seek to strengthen their cooperation in relation to setting aside 150 teaching positions for the benefit of young trainees in levels and specialties specified by the Guinean Ministry of Technical Education and Vocational Training under the terms of the agreement to increase cooperation in vocational training.

Starting at the beginning of the 2023–2024 academic year, the training program is expected to run three years at a rate of 50 slots per year.

Kouyate emphasized King Mohammed VI’s objective of giving African development and intra-African dialogue priority in expressing his delight with cooperation with Morocco.
