Morocco Mulls New Strategy For Moroccan Migrants

Morocco is mulling a new strategy for Moroccan migrants, said minister of the Moroccan community abroad, Abdellatif Maâzouz.

The minister told reporters following the weekly cabinet meeting this Wednesday that a study conducted to this effect recommended three major axes revolving around improving Moroccan expatriates living conditions and their integration in the host countries, preservation of their national identity and attachment to their home country and mobilizing them at the service of Morocco’s bilateral relations with their country of residence.

    He said three stakeholders are needed for this strategy: Moroccan migrants, Morocco and the host country, adding that this new strategy will serve as a roadmap in matters of migration.

      To a question on remittances of Moroccans living abroad, the minister said they declined by 2.5 pc in 2012 and have been stagnating up to end of June 2013, expecting an improvement by end of this year.

    He also urged for involving Moroccans worldwide in the major projects launched by HM the King.
