By Abdelmajid Kassem, PhD*

In its attempt to mobilize Moroccan competencies abroad, the Ministry of Moroccans Residing Abroad (MRA) organizes a Meeting with the Moroccans residing in the United States of America on June 15, 2013 in Rabat, Morocco.

This meeting, organized in partnership with the American Moroccan Competencies Network (AMCN;, is a follow up to the first meeting organized in New York City on June 23, 2012 during which approximately 50 projects have been submitted and presented in four major areas which are Energy, Water and the Environment, Higher Education and Scientific Research, Industry and Entrepreneurship, and Human Development.

The objective of this meeting is to involve the American Moroccan Competencies to the development of Morocco and stimulate economic, trading, and technologic cooperation between the USA and Morocco. The US project leaders will meet with their interested Moroccan partners, discuss the projects, and put the ideas presented in New York into concrete actions in Morocco.

This meeting will be attended by approximately 80 participants, among 20 American Moroccan Competencies and will be held Saturday June 15, 2013 at the Conference Center of the Ministry of Equipment and Transport in Rabat, Morocco.
