Here Ukraine is a winner in the market of knowledge economy, successfully competing with the neighbors: Poland, Romania and the Russian Federation.
In the initial stages, Moroccan students were interested in gaining knowledge in medicine and pharmacy, where Ukraine has already trained thousands of professionals. At the same time, the rapid growth of the economy of the Kingdom of Morocco, the creation of a growing number of infrastructure projects, particularly in the field of energy, requires a greater number of highly qualified engineering personnel.
