South Korean trade delegation visits Morocco
Morocco will host this week a trade delegation from South Korea, which will be led by the Asian nation’s external trade minister Hwang Doo-Yun. The delegation will visit in the kingdom between April 22 and April 24.
The Korean minister is joined by 20 businessmen of various business sectors, including textiles, chemicals and pharmaceuticals, construction and public works, and manufacturing. They will meet with representatives of the General Confederation of Moroccan Enterprises.
According to Chul-Ki Ju, the South Korean ambassador in Rabat, the aim of the visit is to establish a partnership program between the two countries, by creating a forum for direct and permanent contacts between the business communities in Morocco and South Korea.
In 2000, South Korean exports to Morocco equaled $89 million, while trade in the opposite direction totaled $30 million dollars. Korean exports to Morocco were made up of automobiles, textiles and domestic appliances, while Moroccan exports comprised minerals, electronic components and fish products. — (Albawaba-MEBG)
