Morocco Haiti Cooperation

On the verge of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) 161st Council’s meeting in Rome from April 8th to 12th, 2019, Morocco’s Ambassador to Romania and former Minister of Agriculture, Hassan Abouyoub, met with Haiti’s Minister of Agriculture, Natural Resources and Rural Development, Jobert Angrand.

The objective of the meeting was to follow-up on the collaboration efforts initiated between the Kingdom of Morocco and Haiti, with an emphasis on Agriculture.

Over the last couple of months, Morocco and Haiti held several discussions and laid the ground for training sessions for Haitian executives in agricultural credit in which Morocco has developed excellent expertise.

Ten Haitian executives should participate in training to learn from Morocco’s know-how in successfully deploying a robust system of agricultural credit that meets the farmers’ demand and expectations.

Upon expression of interest from Minister Angrand, Hassan Abouyoub presented proposals for the supply of fertilizer from Morocco to Haiti. The details will be sorted out, and the supply contract should go through official channels championed by the Moroccan Ministry of Foreign Affairs together with Haiti’s Ministry of Agriculture.

According to Jobert C. Angrand, “it was imperative that Haiti buys sufficient quality fertilizer for the coming crop years.” Ambassador Hassan Abouyoub highlighted that “this is a win-win partnership and one that will be beneficial for both countries.”
