Morocco and Egypt have agreed to come together in order to develop the cinema industries in the two countries.

The first of two agreement provides for the exchange of experiences, services and equipment between Moroccan Cinema Centre (CCM) and Egyptian cinema production and distribution company and the setting up of a joint commission.

The commission will meet alternately once a year in each country to examine obstacles hampering bilateral cooperation and propose amendments to the agreements clauses.

Under the agreement, the two sides will grant entry and technical and accommodation facilities to artists of both countries. The second agreement sets up an Arab cinema industries union that is open to other Arab countries.

The agreements were concluded in parallel to the Moroccan Film Days held from May 28-31 and during which six Moroccan movies were screened.
