Morocco to open tourism office in Delhi
Mohamed Maliki, Ambassador of the Kingdom of Morocco has said that Morocco will soon be opening a tourism office in New Delhi. “The new office was supposed to open in January this year but due to some technical hurdles, it had to be delayed. We will announce the office and the CEO who will head it soon,” he said.
He also revealed that the two countries had recently signed a bilateral agreement for aviation. “We are in talks with some Indian airlines for better connections between India and Morocco and may even look at a direct connectivity if it makes sense to the airline. We are currently connected to India through a few Middle Eastern and European airlines,” Maliki added. He was in Mumbai to inaugurate the ninth visa application centre which is in Mumbai. All its visa services are contracted to Cox & Kings Global Services.
These developments indicate a growing number of Indian tourists to Morocco. In 2017, the North African country welcomed about 21,850 Indian visitors. “We hope to double this by 2019. We will plan a strategy for the India market once we open our Moroccan National Tourist Office in Delhi,” Maliki added.
