This Partnership covers migration questions, mobility facilitation for Moroccan nationals, improving the recognition of professional qualifications and cooperation between employment services, support for the Moroccan diaspora in Europe wishing to invest in Morocco, as well as cooperation in the field of trafficking in human beings and asylum.
