The solid relation between the European Union and Morocco has entered a re-launch and in-depth phase, said, on Thursday in Rabat, deputy advisor to the EU ambassador Alessio Cappellani.

“Ten years after granting the Advanced Status to the Kingdom, the idea today is to further integrate the Moroccan economy into the European single market, according to a process of convergence at several levels and covering several areas, said Cappellani at the closing conference of the European project on strategic architecture in North Africa and the Middle East “Menara”, organized by the Al Akhawayn University of Ifrane.

The ambition of both parties is to face the future and the challenges in the region, said the diplomat, citing the contribution of the Moroccan university in the Menara project, that falls under the global European program “Horizons 2020”, as a concrete example of cooperation on strategic issues of shared interest.

Funded by the EU, the Menara project aims to analyze strategic issues in Africa and the Middle East and their impact on cooperation with the EU and regional stability, said its regional coordinator, vice president of Academic Affairs at the Al Akhawayn University Nizar Messari.
