Nearly 27,000 Moroccans entered the labor market abroad at the end of August, said Monday Minister of Economic Inclusion, Small Business, Employment and Skills, Younes Sekkouri.

Sekkouri, who was responding to a central question on “the mobility of the Moroccan workforce internationally”, said that this number is distributed over France (14,579 people), Spain (11,429), Qatar (109), Canada (84), Germany (80) and Saudi Arabia (77), noting that the integrated sectors include, in particular, agriculture, air transport, hotel, restaurant, mining and health.

He also noted that the partnership relations have intensified with a number of companies in the Gulf countries, including Qatar and the United Arab Emirates, and which employ, annually, medium and highly qualified Moroccan skills in several economic areas.

The Minister also stressed the appointment of consultants attached to the embassies of the Kingdom in Qatar and the United Arab Emirates with the mission of exploring employment opportunities and monitoring of workers and Moroccan executives in these countries.

He also expressed the willingness to conclude new partnership agreements with countries with promising labor markets, noting that a draft agreement has recently been proposed and which concerns the employment of Moroccan workers and executives in Saudi Arabia.
