Morocco, Korea cooperating on tech initiatives
Published in Bikya Masr on 13 - 12 - 2010

ISTANBUL: Morocco and Korea signed two cooperation agreements this month in an effort to boost computer security and vocational training in the North African country. The agreements were signed by Morocco's Secretary of State to the Foreign Minister Latifa Akharbach and Korean ambassador to Morocco Choi Jai-Chul.
The first agreement concerns the creation by the Moroccan Ministry of Industry, Trade and New Technologies and the Korea International Cooperation Agency (KOICA) of the Moroccan Centre of Alert and Management of Computer Incidents “MA-CERT”.
The project is expected to enable the establishment of a response system before and after computer incidents within the administrative network of the Moroccan government through building a reliable and secure infrastructure of access to information.
The second convention inked provides Korean support to the Ministry of Employment and Vocational Training for the creation and equipment of the Institute for Advanced Training in car industry in Casablanca for the training of multi-specialty technicians in the areas of automotive, automation system and mechanical engineering.
The project aims to develop and strengthen the capacity of car industry in Morocco, through sharing Korean experience in automotive technology.
Akharbach, in statements to reporters, hailed the Moroccan-Korean cooperation, which attaches importance to areas related to Morocco's industrial emergence and Information and Communication Technology (ICT).
These agreements “will quicken the pace of training of human resources in the field of car industry and create Moroccan centers of computer vigilance,” she added.
For his part, Choi Jai-Chul said that “the signing of these agreements is very significant as our two governments are making tireless efforts to strengthen bilateral cooperation in various fields.”
