North Africa has not been spared from the coronavirus pandemic either. Countermeasures have included restricting air travel and suspending ferry services – important measures to curb the spread of the pandemic and to protect Morocco’s population and economy.
In close dialogue with our partners in Morocco, the Special Initiative is helping companies there by implementing economic stabilisation measures to preserve jobs and secure investments. The aim is to consolidate the positive trends in the country’s economic development on a long-term basis.
The Alliance for Product Quality in Africa as part of Invest for Jobs and the GIZ-project ‘Supporting Sustainability Aspects in the Implementation of EU Economic Partnership Agreements (NEW)’ are inviting agricultural advisors in Botswana, Côte d’Ivoire, Egypt, Ethiopia, Ghana, Lesotho, Madagascar, Morocco, Namibia, Rwanda, Senegal, South Africa as well as in Tunisia to a three-day webinar series on the new EU organic regulations.
The European Commission, the African Union Commission, as well as EU and African business organisations are co-organizing the 7th EU-Africa Business Forum (EABF22) which will mainly take place online. For three days, African and European political and business leaders from various sectors will be brought together to exchange on EU-African trade and investment opportunities. Within the event, Invest for Jobs hosts two interesting workshops about the textile and sustainable mobility sector.
Coming into force by 1st January 2022, the new EU-organic regulation will entail substantial changes for producers in African countries. Affected companies and those who are generally interested in organic certification are invited to participate in a webinar series hosted by the GfRS between 25th of October and 12th of November 2021. Registration is open until Friday 22nd October.

Morocco is seen as an important partner country for Germany and the
European Union. As a result of its reform efforts, its economically
favourable location at the north-western tip of Africa and comprehensive
plans for developing industry, agriculture and infrastructure, Morocco
offers many attractive investment opportunities. In addition to the food
industry, the automotive industry is one of the country’s big growth markets. The Special Initiative is targeting these two sectors for
support. In cooperation with our Moroccan partners, we are assisting
industrial and business parks, among other things, in becoming
attractive business hubs.
However, our activities are not limited to these sectors. Morocco is
full of promising investment opportunities that are yours for the
taking. We offer a tailor-made package of advice, contacts and financial
