Published on : Wednesday, January 30, 2019

Spain aims to improve cooperation with Morocco in the tourism sector, as said by the Spanish Minister of Industry, Trade, and Tourism Reyes Maroto in Madrid.

 

Maroto said that Spain and Morocco are strong partners “who share a common history and enjoy strong relations,” after a meeting with Moroccan Minister of Tourism, Air transport, Crafts, and Social Economy Mohammed Sajid, at the 39th International Tourism Fair (FITUR) in Madrid.

 

“Spain is the second [most popular] market for tourists to Morocco after France and Morocco is the top destination for Spanish tourists outside Europe,” said Secretary of State to the Minister of Tourism Lamia Boutaleb.

 

With the new memorandum, said Maroto, “we will be able to formalize the future of our relations in the tourism industry, not least by finding in the common culture, we share a project that will allow visitors who come to Spain to enjoy Morocco” and vice versa.

 

Over 12 million tourists visited Morocco in 2018, going up 8 percent from 2017. Inbound tourism in Spain dropped by 4.9 percent in July 2018 compared to the same period in 2017.
