Naam Mayara, the chairman of the Moroccan House of Councilors, is scheduled to travel to Tel Aviv in September
Naam Mayara, the head of Morocco’s House of Councillors, is expected to visit Tel Aviv in September as a result of an official invitation from Israeli Knesset Speaker Amir Ohna.
According to an official Hespress source in the Israeli Knesset, “Amir Ohana received an official confirmation from his counterpart Mayara, regarding the visit to Tel Aviv next September.”
This trip will strengthen parliamentary cooperation between the two nations, which is consistent with the expansion of bilateral ties between Rabat and Tel Aviv on all fronts.
A senior Moroccan official is in Tel Aviv for the second time on business. In February of last year, Mohamed Benawali, Commander of the Royal Moroccan Artillery, paid a visit to Israel.
According to Hespress sources, the visit is also a part of a Middle Eastern tour that will also take in Palestine and other countries.
As part of a diplomatic mission, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will soon travel to Morocco after receiving a formal invitation from King Mohammed VI.
This is his first official trip, however a few members of Netanyahu’s cabinet have already visited Morocco to talk about cooperation.
More than 2,000 Moroccans visited Israel in the first half of this year, a 66% rise in the number of Moroccan tourists.
Furthermore, $6 million worth of trade was conducted between Morocco and Israel in just June. Trade between the two nations surged dramatically in the first half of the year, hitting $38.5 million, a 96% rise from the same time the year before.
