Malanji’s visit to Morocco is part of the implementation of the agreements signed with Zambia in the areas of new technologies, renewable energies, infrastructure and transport (roads, highways and ports), Amara pointed out during the talks, adding that the implementation of these agreements will strengthen cooperation and partnership between economic actors in the two countries.

Amara said that his department is willing to develop the exchange of experiences and to open up new prospects for cooperation with Zambia, including in the sector of road maintenance through the Institute of Training in Engines and Road Maintenance.

In this context, he recalled the memorandum of understanding signed between the Zambia Development Agency and Morocco's Tangiers Med special agency (TMSA) which is aimed at carrying out infrastructure projects.

For his part, Malanji recalled the visit paid by HM King Mohammed VI in February 2017 to Zambia, which was marked by the signing of several cooperation agreements between the two countries.

The Zambian top diplomat, who said that both countries are ready to exchange expertise, called on to draw on Morocco’s experience in several areas, including in large-scale infrastructure projects.

Malanji, who praised the “good” relations between the two countries, is on a working visit to the Kingdom at the head of a large delegation.
