Organized by the Moroccan American Network, an organization that creates opportunities for small, Moroccan-owned businesses in the US, Morocco Day, held on March 29 in Washington, D.C has now become an annual tradition to celebrate the Kingdom in the United States. This year it will bring together Moroccan small business owners in the US to share their “success stories.”
According to its organizers, this 5th edition will be an opportunity to open up to establish communication between Moroccan leaders and entrepreneurs resident in both countries to create opportunities for collaboration and exchange of expertise between them and their American counterparts.
The event will also host a round table around “the enhancement of Moroccan women”, to highlight its pioneering role in achieving sustainable development and progress in the various sectors in which it operates.
Themes such as equality and the gender approach, challenges faced by the family code, women in the media, women entrepreneurs, sexual harassment and others will be discussed during this meeting.
Meantime, a debate, led by Moroccan and American personalities, will focus on topical issues of interest to young people in Morocco, including Morocco’s new development model, and challenges faced by women leaders which limit their role in society continues the Moroccan-American Network.
The Morocco Day event was the result of a decision from Washington, D.C Mayor Muriel Bowser, who announced that every March 29 will be Morocco Day to celebrate the diversity of the North African country.
