CASABLANCA, Morocco — Morocco’s lead­ing TV chan­nel, 2M, started air­ing a Chi­nese se­ries dubbed into Ara­bic on Thurs­day.

The launch­ing cer­e­mony for the se­ries A Happy Life was chaired by Liu Qibao, head of the Pub­lic­ity Depart­ment of the Com­mu­nist Party of China Cen­tral Com­mit­tee, and Mohammed Ghaz­ali, sec­re­tary-gen­eral of Morocco’s Min­istry of Com­mu­ni­ca­tion and Cul­ture.

At the event, Wang Geng­nian, di­rec­tor gen­eral of China Ra­dio In­ter­na­tional, and Salim el-Sheikh, di­rec­tor gen­eral of 2M, signed an agree­ment on broad­cast­ing Chi­nese se­ries and movies on the Moroc­can chan­nel.

Wang said the agree­ment re­in­forces co­op­er­a­tion be­tween Chi­nese and Moroc­can me­dia, which was in ev­i­dence at the Fo­rum on Chi­naAfrica Co­op­er­a­tion and through vis­its ex­changed by me­dia of­fi­cials from the two coun­tries.

He stressed that CRI has es­tab­lished a strong and long­stand­ing co­op­er­a­tion with var­i­ous African me­dia, which have aired over the years many Chi­nese se­ries and movies in their lo­cal lan­guages, and that th­ese were warmly wel­comed.

Wang vowed to set with Moroc­can me­dia an­other suc­cess­ful ex­am­ple of his­tor­i­cal­cul­tural ex­change be­tween the two coun­tries.

El-Sheikh said the agree­ment builds an­other bridge be­tween the two coun­tries’ cul­tures and that the Mor­ro­can pub­lic will learn more about Chi­nese drama through th­ese se­ries and movies.

He said he hopes to boost re­la­tions be­tween Moroc­can and Chi­nese me­dia.
