The West Sumatra province was represented by the Regional Government Bureau Chief Syafrizal while the Fes-Boulemane was represented by Regional Council President of Fes-Boulemane Mohamed Douiri.
"The letter of intent was signed at the office of Fest-Boulemane governor," the Third Secretary on Information, Social and Cultural Affairs of the Indonesian Embassy in Rabat, Suparman Hasibuan, said here on Sunday.
The signing ceremony was attended by delegates from West Sumatra, Fes-Boulemane regional government officials, mass media representatives, Fes-Boulemane Governor Mohamed Dardouri and Indonesian Ambassador to Morocco Tosari Widjaja.
In the LOI, both sides agreed to take follow up steps to create a Sister Province cooperation by concluding an Memorandum of Understanding which covers various fields of cooperation such as economy, trade, tourism and education.
Ambassador Tosari Widjaja said that West Sumatra and Fes-Boulemane have similarities in the backgrounds of their history, social and culture so that the Indonesian Embassy in Rabat was encouraged to facilitate the two regions to establish a sister province cooperation.
Fes-Boulemane is the third largest region in Morocco with a population of about one million. It has a number of historic building sites which have been recognized by the UNESCO as one of the world heritage sites.
