From now on, taxi drivers in Agadir must learn certain foreign languages. It is the result of an agreement signed between the Universities, the Tourism Council and the association of taxi drivers in the capital of Souss.
German and English are the two languages that taxi drivers need to learn in order to better communicate with tourists. The agreement which offers this opportunity to taxi drivers was signed by the president of Ibn Zohr University, Abdelaziz Bendou, the director of the Higher School of Education and Training (ESEF), Abderrahmane Amsidder, the president of the Agadir Souss-Massa Regional Tourism Council (CRT/Agadir SM), Rachid Dahmaz, and the president of the TAWADA Association of Agadir taxi drivers, Belaid Ouanam.
This agreement is part of the tourism promotion strategy of the Souss-Massa region, and the joint action plan CRT / Agadir-SM, for capacity building of actors in the tourism sector. The objective is to highlight the role played by taxi drivers, especially since they are the ones that tourists meet when they come on vacation.
