Preparations for Marhaba Operation Began on May 3

Preparations for the Marhaba operation began on May 3, at a meeting of the national transit commission chaired by the Ministry of the Interior, Nasser Bourita, Minister of Foreign Affairs, African Cooperation and Moroccan Expatriates, told the House of Representatives on Monday.

Coordination with Spain began on May 17, when the joint Moroccan-Spanish commission in charge of the transit operation was set up, said Bourita, who was answering oral questions on the “Marhaba” operation, adding that the two parties are working on issues relating to fluidity, traffic, support, communication and health monitoring.

Noting that the Marhaba operation is unique of its kind and requires certain measures to be guaranteed, the Minister maintained that changes, both at international level and concerning the Moroccan community abroad, have meant that the organization of this operation takes place all year round, recalling that this was emphasized in the Royal Speech of August 20.

The organization of this operation encounters certain difficulties that we try to overcome from year to year, he said, highlighting the solidity of the ties uniting the Moroccan community established abroad with the mother country.

He also recalled that last year saw 3 million MREs enter the country, an increase of 4pc over 2019, describing the “Marhaba” operation last year as exceptional.
