Laaraj recalled on this occasion the historic visit paid by HM King Mohammed VI to the People's Republic of China, which is a key element of the Chinese-Moroccan partnership, underlining that this visit laid the foundation for solid relations between the two countries in the various strategic areas, particularly in the cultural and scientific fields, said on Saturday a statement from the ministry.

According to the Minister, cooperation in the field of publishing and translation represents an important lever for strengthening cultural relations and promoting cultural dialogue between the two countries.

Laaraj also noted that a growing number of Chinese publishing houses have opened subsidiaries in Morocco, which is an important factor for bringing the Moroccan and Chinese peoples closer at the cultural level.

The Chinese Minister highlighted the symbolic dimension of choosing Morocco as the first African country to be the guest of honor at the Beijing International Book Fair, welcoming efforts made by both parties to develop the Chinese-Moroccan institutional cooperation.
