For his part, Mohammed Benchaaboun underlined the need for start-ups and investors from the Moroccan diaspora to project themselves beyond national borders.

For his part, Mohamed Benchaâboun focused his intervention on inclusive and sustainable development, which today are both the two challenges, but also the two compasses of the Kingdom’s policy, which give the orientation set by the Sovereign towards which the public authorities and all of the living forces of the country must follow.

Highlighting the existence in the Kingdom of a consensus to fight against inequalities and against climate change, with all its consequences on all aspects of our economy and on water resources, the diplomat underlined that sustainable development constitutes the “fight of all and at all times”, in the wake of the devastating consequences of climate change for the region and Africa.

“Ensuring the effectiveness and success of these policies for sustainable and inclusive development imperatively involves creating growth and attracting investment,” noted the Ambassador.
