Morocco takes part in the National Day of New Zealand

 

The Ambassador of HM the King to New Zealand, with residence in Canberra, Mr. Karim Medrek, took part on Tuesday in Whangarei (north of New Zealand), to the commemoration of the National Day of New Zealand.

On this occasion, Mr. Medrek met with the Governor General of New Zealand the Rt Hon Dame Patsy Reddy, the New Zealand Prime Minister, the Right Honourable Jacinda Ardern MP, and the Mayor of Auckland, Mr. Phil Goff.

The New Zealand officials hailed, during these talks, the excellent relations between Rabat and Wellington, expressing the hope that 2018 will constitute the year of the consolidation of exemplary relations between the two countries on all levels.

Welcoming the political stability of the Kingdom and the development of its economy through the sectoral reforms undertaken to improve the business climate and the financial environment, the New Zealand officials underlined the importance of Morocco's geostrategic position as a bridge between Europe, the Arab world and sub-Saharan Africa, as well as its tireless efforts to promote peace and stability in its region.

It is worth mentioning that New Zealand's National Day, or Waitangi Day, commemorated nationwide, celebrates the Treaty of Waitangi, signed on February 6, 1840, in the” Treaty House”.
