Israel will launch a commercial mission in Morocco in 2023, according to Israeli Economy and Industry Minister Orna Barbivai.

Barbivai said on Tuesday that the potential for economic cooperation between the two countries is “tremendous.”

The move comes as ties have grown stronger since Morocco signed the Abraham Accords normalization deal with Israel in the fall of 2020.

The recent advancement has been hampered by the recall of Israel’s ambassador to Morocco, David Govrin, following allegations of financial and sexual misconduct.

Govrin recently signed a construction contract for building a headquarters for a permanent Israeli embassy in Morocco.
