TEN more Fijian students will be handed scholarships to study in Morocco this year, says Moroccan ambassador to Fiji Mohammed Mael-Ainin.

He said they would join 23 Fijian students already in the North African country, pursuing studies in various fields.

"The framework of the co-operation between Morocco and Fiji is that we are awarding 10 scholarships to Fiji students each year," he said.

"We have already received two sets of scholarship recipients — one with 10 and another with 13 students — who are currently studying in Morocco. For the first year, the students have one year of French languages and after that they pursue their studies at the universities."

He said both Morocco and Fiji were similar because tourism was the backbone of the national economy.

"We have many high level schools of tourism in Morocco and Fijian students are getting trained in this field.

"We are also a country where the fisheries industry is developing and Fiji as an island is surrounded by water and this is an important industry here as well."
