Morocco’s CCME Participates in 60th Anniversary of Morocco/Belgium Labor Agreement


The Council of Moroccan Community Living Abroad (CCME) is participating in the Belgian-Moroccan Academic Forum held on February 8-9 in Brussels, commemorating the 60th anniversary of the bilateral agreement signed on February 17, 1964, regarding the recruitment of Moroccan labor force in Belgium.

The forum addresses various themes including coloniality, identities, and cross-representations, as well as the movement of elites and migrations, scientific cooperation, technological transfers, and development. Organized by the DIMOBEL consortium, which includes the University of Liège, the Graduates Circle of Belgium (CLB), the Mohammed Premier University of Oujda, and the ESCA Management School of Casablanca, the event aims to foster dialogue and collaboration between academic and research institutions from both countries.

Driss El Yazami, President of CCME, commended the initiative, highlighting the comprehensive topics discussed and the participation of young Belgian-Moroccan researchers alongside seasoned scholars who have long been engaged in migration issues in Belgium.

The Forum, taking place at the Royal Museum of Art and History in Brussels, serves as a platform to assess the situation six decades after the signing of the labor agreement between Morocco and Belgium. It also underscores the future challenges and the importance of strengthening cooperation between the two countries in various fields.
