Only a few months after Morocco signed the Abraham Accords, establishing full diplomatic ties with Israel, a large delegation from the country will arrive in Israel. The officials will participate in the Agromashov 2021 agricultural exhibition’ in Jerusalem, next week. The large delegation from Morocco will promote cooperation and integrated entrepreneurship with local farmers.
“Three months ago we established an association to promote relations and activities between Morocco and Israel with about 100 people from the industry, culture, and agriculture sectors combined with the Association for the Advancement of Culture and Industry Morocco-Israel to promote cooperation,” Rafael Peretz, who is leading the cooperation with Morocco from the Israeli side, told jewishpress.com.
“For 60 years, in Morocco, they mourned the disconnection with Israelis and want to rectify the situation, they want to reach out, cooperate, and move forward with us,” he said. The delegation will include a diverse representation from Morocco, including the largest avocado grower and exporter in Morocco, Adil Simo Abdu, who owns thousands of acres of avocados that are exported to Spain and areas in Europe and South America.
