Your Excellencies, Honored Guests, Ladies and Gentlemen, Good evening,

As Ambassador of His Majesty the King of Morocco to the Republic of Korea, it is indeed a great honor and privilege to attend this illustrious event and to be selected as one of the recipients of the Top Ambassadors Award for the Prestigious 2018 Consumer Grand Prize.

First of all, I would like to express sincere gratitude to the Korea Consumer Association, an affiliation organization of the NDNnews & SeoulCity magazine, for hosting today’s event. On behalf of the Seoul Diplomatic Corps, today’s Ambassadors Awards recipients, and myself, thank you! Every year, this association holds the prestigious Korea Consumer Awards here, in the Memorial Hall of the National Assembly, at the very heart of Korea…what better place to reaffirm the central tenets that work at the heart of the relationship between our countries?.

Your Excellencies, Honored Guests, Ladies and Gentlemen,

Under the leadership of His Majesty King Mohammed VI, the past two decades have seen the implementation of a holistic vision for twenty-first century Morocco, based on bold social, political, and economic reforms. Backed by political stability, the progress and prosperity of our nation makes it a leader within Africa. Inside our borders, we boast an inclusive social policy, religious coexistence, and a vital free enterprise sector that guides the economy.

As a symbol of the growing friendship and working relationship between Morocco and Korea, especially in 2018, a number of high-ranking government officials and business investors have conducted visits to both countries, in addition to the successful (7th) Seventh Session of the Morocco- Korea Joint Commission held last month in Seoul.

With the ever-increasing connections between our nations, we believe that the Republic of Korea can rely on the Kingdom of Morocco as a Gateway to the African continent, and Morocco can rely on Korea as its opening to the Asian-Pacific Region. Further, I would like to assure all Korean companies that they can similarly rely on the Moroccan Embassy to provide all necessary assistance for investing and developing their business in Morocco’s booming economy. Together, we will move forward into a more connected, and mutually prosperous future.

Your Excellencies, Honored Guests, Ladies and Gentlemen,

I understand that the fundamental purpose of the Korea Consumer Awards is to promote the consumer’s rights and to present appropriate, selective opportunities for consumers. These ideals align perfectly with the work of global-minded diplomats.

We Ambassadors believe that we must support and reward individuals, enterprises and institutions that respect consumers’ rights, practice transparency, and foster healthy competition. Dedication to these goals is the primary way to improve the quality of life for consumers at all levels.

Your Excellencies, Honored Guests, Ladies and Gentlemen,

In closing, I would like to express my deep gratitude to each and every one of you. First, I need to give a special thanks to the whole team at the Moroccan Embassy and, most of all, to my wife. Without your constant support, none of this would be possible. As a Moroccan, I have a special place in my mind and heart for my home country, but through my work here, as Ambassador of His Majesty the King of Morocco, I have grown to understand and admire the spirit and commitment of Korean people. As I look around, I see the faces of colleagues and friends who have facilitated my diplomatic mission here in every way, opening doors and creating relationships, politically, culturally, socially and business-wise.

Once again, Thank you and my congratulations to all Awards recipients
