Today, Members of the Riigikogu formed the Estonia-Morocco Parliamentary Group with the aim of strengthening the parliamentary cooperation between the two countries.
The Chairman of the Parliamentary Group Raivo Tamm said that as Morocco had just recently elected a new parliament at elections where he had served as an observer, it was now the best time to establish an Estonia-Morocco Parliamentary Group. “My background in culture also makes me appreciate the value of developing cultural ties in order to help promote bilateral relations in tourism as well as economy. Estonians know Morocco as a popular travel destination, and I am sure we would love to see a reverse flow of tourists as well. The Moroccan side is obviously also interested in our digital and IT competence,” Tamm explained.
Members of the Parliamentary Group
The Estonia-Morocco Parliamentary Group is chaired by Raivo Tamm, its Vice-Chairman is Sven Sester, and other members are Urmas Reinsalu, Toomas Kivimägi, Kalvi Kõva, Hele Everaus, and Kaido Höövelson.
Riigikogu Parliamentary Groups help the MPs communicate with other national parliaments, carry out foreign policy, and promote Estonia around the world. Through Support Groups, the members and factions of the Riigikogu can draw attention to specific issues, and support or protect the interests of narrower spheres of life.
The 14th Riigikogu has formed 69 Parliamentary Groups and 91 Support Groups.
