The Minister of Economy and Finance, Nadia Fettah, held talks on October 10 in Marrakech with the First Deputy Prime Minister of the Spanish Government and Minister of Finance and Digital Transformation, Nadia Calviño Santamaría.
During the meeting, which took place in the presence of Spain’s Ambassador to Morocco, Ricardo Díez-Hochleitner, the two officials discussed different topics of common interest, including prospects for strengthening cooperation between the two Kingdoms, while praising the excellent relations linking Morocco and Spain.
On this occasion, Alaoui and Santamaría reviewed the different areas of bilateral cooperation, describing the existing ties between Morocco and Spain as “exemplary,” which are set to grow even stronger, particularly in the wake of the joint hosting, alongside Portugal, of the 2030 FIFA World Cup.
