Morocco opens Honorary Consulate in Macedonia
The Moroccan Ambassador to Bulgaria and Macedonia, Zakia El Midaoui, stressed in a statement the importance of the opening of an honorary consulate (or Honorary Consulate) to strengthen the friendly ties and cooperation between the two countries in several important sectors such as investment, trade and tourism.
Honorary consuls are different from their "paid" counterparts in the embassies or consulates. Sometimes their task consists exclusively of the provision of information on the country, promoting the country on numerous activities and referring the bulk of the requests to the competent consular office or Embassy in the capital cities or Consulate in secondary cities. Sometimes, the honorary consul also visa issuing. The honorary consul mainly plays a role in the promotion of trade and culture of the country that has appointed him.
