On the sidelines of the 14th edition of the U.S.-Africa Business Summit, the Minister of Foreign Affairs, African Cooperation and Moroccan Expatriates, MFA Nasser Bourita, held talks on July 20, 2022 in Marrakesh with the Chief Executive Officer for the Africa Union Development Agency (AUDA-NEPAD), Ms. Nardos Bekele-Thomas.

Morocco has much to offer to the African continent, particularly in terms of organization of the structure and administrative reform, said Ms. Bekele-Thomas at a press briefing following her talks with MFA Nasser Bourita.

AUDA-NEPAD, which aims to accelerate economic cooperation and integration among African countries, has developed strategies and policies that need to be implemented to impact individuals, she added.

Highlighting the potential of Africa's youth, the AUDA-NEPAD head stressed the need to "make sure that these youth are integrated into a process of socio-economic transformation."

Ms. Bekele-Thomas also welcomed the convening of the U.S.-Africa Business Summit, stating that this forum is of key importance for implementing the 2063 Agenda, which aims to turn Africa into a global power of the future.

"The 2063 Agenda is a very complex agenda that would make Africa a resilient and more modern continent," she noted in this regard.

Placed under the High Patronage of His Majesty King Mohammed VI, this Summit which will continue until July 22, in partnership with the "Corporate Council on Africa" (CCA), is attended by a large U.S. government delegation, African ministers, and decision-makers from the largest U.S. multinationals and the African business community.
