Santo Domingo, the capital of the Dominican Republic, and Casablanca, the largest city in Morocco, would be connected by a direct aviation link. This information was made public by Amaury Justo Duarte, the Dominican Republic’s ambassador to Morocco, who noted that it will be a significant development for the exchange and relations between the two countries.
A key political step to strengthen commercial and cultural connections is the establishment of a direct airline between Casablanca and Santo Domingo. It will offer a practical and effective mode of transit, fostering business and travel between the two nations.
The expanding trade ties between Morocco and the Dominican Republic were also underlined by Ambassador Justo Duarte. Rum, tobacco, avocados, pineapples, and other goods are prospective exports from the Dominican Republic to Morocco, while imports from Morocco include wine and fish. Due to the lack of a visa requirement, he claimed that Moroccans routinely travel to the Dominican Republic.
Despite the small Dominican diaspora’s presence in Morocco, migration is not the primary emphasis of the two countries’ relationship. Instead, it emphasizes developing diplomatic relationships, fostering cultural exchanges, and strengthening economic links.
The Dominican Republic hopes to build deeper ties and mutually beneficial relationships with Central America and Morocco by acting as a link between the two regions. This will create new possibilities for the two countries to expand and collaborate.
