The amendment is part of the Specific Agreement for the implementation of GTEX in Morocco for the period 2019-2021.
The Swiss Federal Council has contributed $ 1.8 million to the program since its inception.
The Swiss Federal Council and Morocco recently signed an amendment extending the agreement of the Global Program for Textiles and Clothing (GTEX), signed in November 2018. The amendment was signed during a ceremony chaired by Ryad Mezzour , Moroccan Minister of Industry and Trade, and Guillaume Scheurer, Swiss Ambassador to Morocco.
The new amendment suggests an additional budget granted to Morocco to cover the activities planned for the period 2022-2023. The Moroccan government will allocate 10 percent of this amount to cover the logistical and management aspects of the project.
This program aims to improve the competitiveness of the textile and clothing sector, according to a Moroccan daily.
