China to help Morocco in infrastructure and industry: Premier Li

China is willing to support domestic companies to participate in Morocco's infrastructure and industrialization by endorsing production capacity cooperation, Premier Li Keqiang said on Thursday in Beijing.

Premier Li met with Mohammed VI, King of Morocco, during the latter's visit to Beijing. Mohammed VI ascended to the throne in 1999 and was the country's first king to visit China in 2002.

"We have rich experiences in infrastructure and price advantages in fields such as construction materials and equipment manufacturing," Premier Li said.

China-Morocco cooperation has a bright future as the two economies share strong complementarities and both countries can promote capacity cooperation in areas such as industrial parks, high-speed railways and renewable energy, the premier added.

Premier Li also said China would also like to transfer technologies fit for Morocco's demands and help the African partner train technical and management personnel to enhance its independent development.

Mohammed VI said Morocco will strengthen pragmatic cooperation in infrastructure and high-speed railways, as well as broaden people-to-people exchanges with China, in efforts to boost all-round cooperation between the two countries and contribute to the development of China-Africa ties.
