Bucharest, May 2, 2023: The President of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Romania (CCIR), Mr. Mihai Daraban, had a meeting with the Ambassador of the Kingdom of Morocco in Romania, H.E. Mr. Hassan Abouyoub, in the context of the National Chamber’s strategy to bring Romanian business back to traditional markets.

“The development of exports represents a way of increasing the degree of competitiveness and, at the same time, of developing the Romanian economy in the long term. Thus, the CCIR strategy regarding the promotion of the domestic business environment has in mind the regaining of traditional markets. The business environment in Romania must return to the traditional markets, where, in the past, it managed to develop strong economic relations. Certainly, the area of North Africa is a very attractive one, and if we take into account the increase in the volume of trade with Morocco, from the last period, we see an upward trend, an appreciation of the amount from 786.1 million euros, which was recorded at the end of  2019, up to 1.2 billion euros at the end of  2022. I take this opportunity to invite Moroccan businessmen to participate in INDAGRA, the most important agricultural fair in Eastern Europe, where we can organize a special event dedicated to boosting Romania-Morocco bilateral relations”, said the president of the CCIR, Mr. Mihai Daraban.

“Currently, the Kingdom of Morocco is developing the strategy to boost trade with the states that are part of the European Union and, considering the traditional relationship we have with Romania, we rely a lot on the involvement of both your country and the CCIR in the development large-scale joint projects. We really want to organize an economic mission in Bucharest, right on the sidelines of the INDAGRA fair, the Association of Exporters from Morocco being very interested in the Romanian market, especially in terms of the automotive, IT&C, logistics, services and tourism sectors. As mentioned by the president of the CCIR, Mr. Mihai Daraban, the results regarding the commercial exchanges between the two states are increasing from year to year, which means that there is a high economic potential that must be exploited to the maximum”, said the Ambassador of the Kingdom of Morocco in Romania, H.E. Mr. Hassan Abouyoub.
