He reminded that as a result of the cooperation started in Rabat and Morocco, delegations of the Hungarian-Moroccan Business Council and businessmen visited Morocco, had negotiations with government officials and businessmen, took part in exhibitions and other events. Cooperation agreements have been signed that need to be filled with content, and in some areas specific negotiations have already begun. This is the route to be followed so that concrete businesses could be carried out.
