On Wednesday, Morocco took over the rotating presidency of the Euro-African Dialogue Ministerial Conference on Migration and Development.
At a ceremony held in Cadiz on the occasion of the 6th Ministerial Conference of the “Rabat Series”, Spain’s Fernando Grande, the Minister of the Interior Marlaska, gave the Minister of Economic Inclusion, Micro-Entrepreneurship, Employment and Skills, Younes Sekkouri the presidency wishing him success.
Grande Marlaska took the opportunity to stress that “the Rabat series must be supported and strengthened because the reasons are still there”, adding that “the issue of migration is the overarching and It must be dealt with based on a balanced vision,” he stressed.
The Spanish minister said the only way to tackle the migration phenomenon holistically is “bilateral cooperation based on shared responsibility, mutual trust and daily actions”.
Younes Sekkouri clarifies that Rabat has become a “pillar of reference” in the field of migration around the world, adding: “In the coming months and years, we will see innovative means of grabbing everyone’s bet. “Consider a partner.”
“We are also working to dismantle the negative immigration stereotypes that undermine the policies our country seeks to implement,” Sekkouri added.
The Chair of the Rabat Series is the driving force behind shaping the Euro-African dialogue on migration and development. The Chair’s role is to facilitate dialogue, oversee policy meetings, and help build consensus between different sides.
Each member of the Steering Committee may take turns chairing Africa and Europe during her one-year term.
