The Project aimed at facilitating the cooperation between Belgium and Morocco in the management of regular migration, by offering a safe and lawful alternative to young Moroccans willing to gain qualified work experience in Belgium. PALIM was meant to respond to labour market needs in the ICT sector Belgium and Morocco while developing professional skills of young graduates in Morocco, and developing the cooperation between the two countries. The Action was implemented by Enabel, the Belgian Development Agency, in cooperation with employment agencies and employers’ federations from both countries.
A technical training programme was organised for 120 young Moroccans covering technical (ICT), language and soft skills. At the end of the programme, the participants went through a selection process with Belgian and Moroccan companies.
Selected candidates for Belgium followed pre-departure training sessions aiming at preparing candidates for their stay in Belgium with regard to legal, intercultural and admin- istrative issues.
The project developped the cooperation between the two public employment organisations from Morocco and Belgium, mainly regarding international job placement.
