CEO of Moroccan BMCE bank, Othmane Benjelloun, was made this Tuesday honorary trustee of the Washington-based Centre For Strategic And International Studies (CSIS).

The Moroccan banker received this distinction at a ceremony attended by 200 American and foreign figures from the spheres of politics, business and media.

The CSIS chairman, John Hamre, hailed Benjelloun’s “exceptional leadership and great contribution” to the CSIS to which he is member since 1987.

This is the first time that the think-thank, whose honorary chairman is Dr. Henry Kissinger, is awarding the honorary trustee status.
