A look back at our trade mission to Morocco

22 March 2023

As part of ongoing efforts to build ties and strengthen economic relations with countries around the Mediterranean basin, risingSUD president and regional councillor Bernard KLEYNHOFF led a trade mission to Morroco between March 13 to 16, 2023.

Co-organized with the French Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Morocco (CFCIM) and Business France, with the support of the Bpifrance public investment bank, this regional mission was highlighted by the inauguration of the ID² ENGINEERING & MANUFACTURING production facility.

ID², a family-owned SME based in Marseille and co-managed by Emeric DIDIER and Malik DEROUICHE, welcomed Bernard KLEYNHOFF, Jean-Pierre COLIN, (Vice-President of the Region Sud in charge of Finance and Cooperation Partnerships), as well as a regional delegation of 10 companies* to its new facility in Tangiers.

The companies that participated in the mission were a showcase for our regional tech, industrial, and green business ecosystems. They were able to obtain numerous meetings with Moroccan companies during the week-long trip in order to develop their activities in Morocco and identify opportunities on the other side of the Mediterranean.

During this trade mission, a working meeting was also held at the offices of ASMEX, the Moroccan exporters’ association based in Casablanca. The meeting was held in the presence of Bruno BULNOIS (President of HOMERe), Bernard KLEYNHOFF, Panayotis LIOLIOS and Hicham EL MERINI (the Co-Presidents of Africalink), and Abdelajij TAARIJI (Vice-President of ASMEX).

Thanks to this trade mission, new opportunities for cooperation and business have been identified.
