Liberia has joined the ranks of African countries that have opened General Consulates in Dakhla and Laayoune. The inauguration ceremony was co-chaired by the Minister of Foreign Affairs, African Cooperation and Moroccans abroad, Mr. Nasser Bourita, and his Liberian counterpart, Mr. Gbehzohngar Findley.

By this opening, Liberia becomes the 10th African country to have a consular representation in the Southern Provinces. It is the 4th General Consulate inaugurated in Dakhla in 2020, after those of Djibouti on February 28th, Gambia on January 7th, and Guinea on the 17th of the same month.

The inauguration of a Liberian General Consulate in Morocco is by all means a significant milestone, in view of the important role played by this brotherly country in Africa’s history. Liberia is known to be the first post-colonial Republic in the continent to gain its independence in the 19th century.

This new consular representation will not only strengthen the long-standing relations between Morocco and Liberia, but it will also serve the Liberian community in the region and contribute to the consolidation of cooperation between the two countries.
