|   Senate

This 28 January 2020, the President of the Senate, Rt. Hon. Dr Iyamuremye Augustin, together with the Senate Vice Presidents of the Senate Hon. Nyirasafari Esperance and Hon. Dr Mukabaramba Alvera received in a courtesy call, H.E. Imani Youssef, the Ambassador of Kingdom of Morocco to Rwanda.

Their exchanges aimed at further strengthening the bilateral relations between two countries in general and relations between the parliaments of both countries in particular.

H.E. Imani Youssef revealed that he interacted with the President of the Senate about the cooperation between two countries. “We have talked about the cooperation of both countries and the projects that are taking place due to the commitment of our Leaders.” He added.

The President of the Senate, Rt. Hon. Dr Iyamuremye Augustin commended the projects between Rwanda and Morocco and vowed to oversee their implementation, as it is in the mandate of the Parliament of Rwanda.

Rwanda and Morocco enjoy strong bilateral and multilateral relations. In 2016, this cooperation was further strengthened following state visits of H.E. Paul Kagame to Morocco (June 2016) and of H.M. King Mohammed VI to Rwanda (October 2016). Twenty-three (23) agreements were signed then, and investments worth US$160 million were committed in agribusiness, financial services, health, industry and construction by Moroccan investors.

The parliaments of two countries have strong ties: The Speaker of Chamber of Deputies and the President of the Senate visited the Parliament of Morocco in December 2018 and in May 2017 respectively. Additionally, On January 15th, 2020, Hon. Amb. Olivier Nduhungirehe, Minister of State (MoFA), paid a courtesy call to Hon. Habib El Maliki, President of the Chamber of Deputies of Morocco.
