Inauguration of the German-Moroccan Excellence Centre


On Saturday, April 26, 2014, the Moroccan Minister for Agriculture and Marine Fisheries, Mr Aziz Akhannouch, together with the Parliamentary State Secretary at the German Ministry for Food and Agriculture, Mr Peter Bleser, inaugurated the German-Moroccan Excellence Centre CECAMA in Sidi Slimane Province(


CECAMA which has been  established by the AFC/ADT consortium since October 2012 is directly contributing to the implementation of the “Green Morocco Plan” for Agriculture and Rural Development.

The Centre and the AFC/ADT project team are conveying methods and technologies in agricultural machinery, production input, and farm management that will lead to a sustainable increase in agricultural production.

CECAMA will be supported actively by several commercial partners as well as by Morocco’s National Agricultural Advisory Office (ONCA).

We are very proud of the successful inauguration and will contribute together with our project team and with all partners to develop CECAMA further into a model for Morocco’s agricultural development.
