Guinea’s president Alpha Condé was reported to say that he phoned King Mohammed VI to ask him to report the Morocco-Guinea Economic Forum, to limit the threats of the outbreak of the deadly virus to Morocco.
Guinea’s president said that King Mohammed VI told him that “there is no way the Morocco-Guinea Economic Forum will be reported, despite the Ebola threat.“
It is worth reminding that the Moroccan Ministry of Health has strengthened Health monitoring at the level of international Moroccan airports and other access points. As a matter of fact, since last April, The Moroccan Ministry of Health has put a hand and a leg to follow to the letter the measures of the International Health System to eliminate the risk of the deadly virus outbreak to Morocco.
On paper, Morocco is immune to Ebola as the only way that the virus could get to Morocco is through the country’s international airports, as the borders with Algeria are closed, while in the south of the country, a 2700 km-long wall is separating Morocco from other territories occupied by the Polisario Front.
The Forum is set to start tomorrow and will be chaired by Miriem Chaqroun Bensalah, President of the CGEM and her Guinean counterpart, Mr. Ismael Keita.
The Forum will will witness the participation of many Guinean and Moroccan ministers, as well as many Guinean and Moroccan businessmen/businesswomen.
Among the Moroccan ministers that will be present, the list includes Mohamed Boussaid, Minister of Economy and Finance, Aziz Akhannouch, Minister of Agriculture and Fisheries, Moulay Hafid Elalamy, Minister of Industry, Trade, Investment and the Digital Economy, Aziz Rabbah, Minister of Transport and Logistics, Lahcen Haddad, Minister of Tourism, Nabil Benabdallah, Minister of Housing, and Abdelkader Aamara, Minister of Energy, Mines, Water and Environment.
