ENGAGEMENT OF THE REGION
Singapore's relations with the countries in the Maghreb (Algeria, Libya, Morocco and Tunisia) have grown steadily since 2005, driven by several high-level visits that fostered closer political and economic cooperation.
Singapore has diplomatic presence in all the Maghreb countries – we have accredited Non-Resident Ambassadors to Algeria, Morocco and Tunisia while our Ambassador in Cairo is concurrently accredited to Libya. The Ambassadors of Algeria, Libya, Morocco and Tunisia in Jakarta are concurrently accredited to Singapore.
Singapore is working with the Maghreb countries on ways to encourage greater trade and investment opportunities. In mid-2014, the Singapore Business Federation (SBF) organised business forums to highlight to the local business community the opportunities in Tunisia and Morocco, respectively. The SBF also led a business delegation to Morocco in March 2018. Since 2014, Morocco and Tunisia have also participated in the Africa Singapore Business Forum, organised by Enterprise Singapore.
Singapore has actively shared our developmental experience with the Maghreb countries. To date, over 300 officials from the Maghreb have participated in various capacity building courses under the Singapore Cooperation Programme.
