The King of Spain Felipe VI and his wife, the queen of Spain Letizia Ortiz Rocasolano, are expected to visit Morocco on the 9th of January. Invited by King Mohammed VI, the royal couple will spend three days in the kingdom, Spanish daily ABC reports.

The visit has not been officially announced yet, but according to the same source, Mohamed VI and Felipe IV will participate in a high-level conference, bringing together two hundred Spanish and Moroccan businessmen.

Indeed, the two countries initiated the creation of a Morocco-Spain Economic Council, made up of the directors of the main Moroccan and Iberian companies. This council ails at further promoting economic relations between the two kingdoms. In this sense, the Spanish Minister of Foreign Affairs, Alfonso Dastis, is expected among the delegation accompanying the royal couple in Rabat.

Felipe VI and Letizia had been planning this trip for a while, but the situation in Spain in the last two years, particularly the crisis in Catalonia and the fight against terrorism, had forced them to delay their visit. The visit will be the fifth of its kind since the accession of King Felipe VI to the throne in June 2014.
