Morocco Takes Part in Select USA Investment Summit in Washington

A large Moroccan delegation that includes several business leaders representing various economic areas takes part in the 2019 SelectUSA Investment Summit, the highest-profile event dedicated to promoting foreign direct investment in the United States which opened Monday in Washington, D.C.

The three-day event is an opportunity for the Moroccan delegation to connect with U.S. economic development organizations to facilitate business investment.

The participation of Moroccan businessmen and entrepreneurs in this event is a recognition of Morocco's role as a power house of development in Africa, Vice-President of the Moroccan Exporters Association (ASMEX), Amine Laghidi, told MAP.

This is an opportunity to highlight Morocco's potential as a strategic hub for trade and investment, he went on.

Companies attending the Investment Summit discover new business opportunities and meet directly with economic development organization professionals from all corners of the United States, who work to bring those investments to fruition.
Participants also have the opportunity to improve their understanding of the U.S. business climate through discussions by policymakers and business leaders.

Speakers at the 2019 Investment Summit will address key issues related to foreign direct investment and economic development, and discuss priority sectors including advanced manufacturing, health care and biotechnology, agriculture, and the digital economy.
