Morocco takes part in the 51st Ordinary Session of the Conference of Heads of State and Government of ECOWAS
Monrovia 04.06.2017

The Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, Mr. Nasser Bourita, took part, on Sunday 4 June 2017 in Monrovia, in the 51st ordinary session of the Conference of Heads of State and Government of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS), which was crowned with the agreement in principle on the accession of Morocco to this organization.   


On this occasion, Mr. Bourita stated that it is a recognition of the personal commitment and long-standing investment of His Majesty King Mohammed VI in this region.

In this regard, he stresed that it is a very important decision by which ECOWAS member countries launched three important messages, namely their agreement in principle on the accession of Morocco to this organization, the recognition of the strong and multidimensional links linking the Kingdom and the countries of ECOWAS, and in particular the invitation sent to His Majesty the King in order to take part in the next Summit of this organization.

The Minister also noted that with this decision, the political phase in which the Heads of State and Government of ECOWAS have declared politically that they are in favor of this accession has just been completed, adding that the next step is a legal one, during which the organization will examine the legal provisions to be adapted to make this accession effective.

Recalling that the Sovereign has paid more than 25 visits to ECOWAS countries since 2001, during which more than 600 agreements have been signed, Mr. Bourita stated that Morocco is today the first investor in this region with almost two thirds of its foreign investment.
