Morocco receives EU financial support in illegal immigration

Morocco was provided with financial support from the European Union for its goal to tackle the growing illegal immigration.

The EU granted its financial support to Morocco in line with its emergency Trust Fund for Africa, helping Morocco in its National Strategy on Migration and Asylum.

The grant funding “helps step up the fight against migrant smuggling and trafficking of human beings, while improving the Moroccan authorities’ capacity to manage their borders,” the European Commission explained.

The EU is accelerating its efforts to back Morocco in tackling migration “in response to increased migratory pressure along the Western Mediterranean Route,” the statement added.
