Al Mutaiwee said upon receiving Mohammed Hesso, the President of Kenitra Chamber of Commerce, Industry and Services: "The Moroccan brothers are now able to participate in the several exhibitions organised by Dubai, where it is possible to promote the Moroccan products, recognise competitors and similar business counterparts as well as having the opportunities to make successful deals."

Kenitra is located in the Northwest part of Morocco, near by Rabat, where it faces the river of Sebou, with a population of 580,000 people. It is an important economic base to produce grains, vines, citrus, fruits, vegetables, Zink, cork, oil and natural gas in addition to textiles, fisheries, tobaccos and fertilizer factories.

During the meeting, Al Mutaiwee said that there are several factors that can support the inter-commerce between Dubai and Morocco; increase the flow of Moroccan exports to Dubai and the regional markets, such as launching a direct airway line between Dubai and Casablanca also signing the Twinning Agreement between the two cities.

He emphasised that the Arab economic relations are not effective enough, in spite of holding many agreements, but they are still pending implementation.
