Morocco to begin construction of a new TGV high-speed rail link

According to a report published by BBC, “the agreement between France and Morocco to build the line was signed during Mr Sarkozy’s first state visit to the country in October 2007.”

However, “the Moroccan government says the project will further enhance economic relations between the two countries.”
