Newsline: Ireland to Open Embassy in Rabat for the First Time

Irish Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Simon Coveney announced that his country will open a new embassy in Rabat to develop trade and business opportunities between Morocco and Ireland. “Ireland is so far one of the few European Union member states without presence in North Africa…a new embassy in Rabat will allow us to develop trading opportunities, especially in the fields of agri-food, agricultural machinery and renewable energy,” Coveney said in a statement to Moroccan state owned press, Maghreb Arab Press (MAP). The decision comes in line with the Global Ireland 2025 strategy to strengthen Ireland’s presence globally. The country plans to open other embassies and consulates in Cardiff, Wales; Frankfurt, Germany; Los Angeles, US; and Kiev, Ukraine, starting from 2019.
