A hundred are in Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Canada and Germany. They have entered different sectors: agriculture, air transport, hotel business, public works, mining, automotive and health.Morocco has also obtained a “historic” agreement with Portugal, allowing Moroccan workers to benefit from several rights, including family reunification.
