In another sign of warming ties between Israel and Morocco, 13 memoranda of understanding were signed at the Connect to Innovate forum in Casablanca.

Israeli and Moroccan officials on Monday signed a series of agreements on technology, agriculture, climate, and other fields that “could benefit both countries” at a forum hosted by Start-Up Nation Central, which promotes Israeli innovation worldwide.

Over 150 officials from Israel and Morocco attended the event.

Participants also discussed the possibility of employment of Moroccans in Israeli high-tech companies via remote work.

SNC CEO Avi Hasson, whose former roles include chief scientist at the Economy Ministry and head of the Israel Innovation Authority, said, “For the last few decades innovation has been the driving force of the Israeli economy, leading to consistent growth, raising its standard of living, and opening new opportunities on the diplomatic front. As the world moved from a resource-based economy to a knowledge-based one, we invite our regional and global partners to take part in the journey and benefit from the lessons we learned on the path to becoming the Start-Up Nation.

“We believe that Morocco, under the leadership of HM Mohammed VI, is uniquely suited to partner with Israel in blazing a trail to a new MENA region, one that is connected by a genuine desire for peace and prosperity. This conference is a pivotal point as we embark on a joint innovation journey between Israel and Morocco toward economic prosperity.”
