Morocco can act as an “integrating framework” between Europe and Africa, thanks to its dynamism and its distinguished geographical position, the South African think tank “Brenthurst Foundation” said Wednesday.

“Achieving the expected strategic benefits requires the deepening of regional economic relations and the Kingdom of Morocco can perfectly act, for this purpose, as an integrating framework,” the director of this think tank, Greg Mills, told MAP in reaction to the speech of His Majesty King Mohammed VI to the Nation on the occasion of the 68th anniversary of the Revolution of the King and the people.

Noting that “the geography and economic ties between Morocco and the European Union (EU) create a useful bridge between Europe and Africa,” the analyst said he was confident that the development of relations between the Kingdom and Spain will undoubtedly contribute to strengthening ties between the two continents.

“Deeper connections are certainly in everyone’s interest. Politics is both an enabler, but can also be a stumbling block if mismanaged,” he stressed.
