Rabat – The Moroccan American Network (MAN) will host its third CEO Summit at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C, on May 10.
MAN’s CEO Summit serves a key platform for small businesses in the US and Africa, offering panel discussions that facilitate the exchange of ideas, driven by its vision to encourage small business opportunities in Africa.
“We want to highlight opportunities for greater collaboration and exchange of ideas, promoting foreign investment and economic growth,” said MAN’s President, Mohamed El Hajjam, “We will be engaging in dialogue and exchange of ideas for macro-opportunities, such as investments, as well as micro-opportunities, in areas such as infrastructure and health, and creating an environment where business leaders can meet other business leaders,” he added.
The organizers put women’s roles at the heart of this summit, “We will also focus on women’s economic empowerment in Africa,” said the summit’s event manager, Kim Taylor-Wilson. “We are pleased to have one of the champions in the area with us as a panelist.”
Congressman Donald Sternoff Beyer Jr. and Councilman Robert White will give the opening speeches for the event, while the Ambassador to the US from the Republic of Mozambique, Carlos Dos Santos, will attend as this year’s guest of honor.
The conference will be attended by think tank experts, business leaders, and members of the Congressional Black Caucus, a political organization composed of African-American congressional representatives that pursues a policy agenda to improve services and opportunities for African-American and other marginalized communities.
“The CEO Summit is an excellent opportunity to meet others who face the same challenges and to learn from the know-how of successful business people and experts in the field,” said El Hajjam.
MAN connects Moroccan and American small business communities, providing a foundation for both countries’ economies, and thus playing a crucial role in strengthening their economic ties.
The association recently announced the launching of the “Morocco Day” celebration, which will take place on March 29 of every year in the US capital.
