Alexandria-Based Moroccan American Network To Celebrate Morocco Day with Fourth CEO Summit at Willard

ALEXANDRIA, VA – The Moroccan American Network will host its Fourth CEO Summit focusing on small business opportunities from the U.S. to Africa, on March 29, 2019, at the Willard InterContinental Hotel in Washington, D.C.

Entitled “Small  Business  Matters–Business Luncheon,” the CEO Summit 4 will present panel discussions and facilitate the exchange of ideas focusing on growing small business and investment opportunities on the continent of Africa.

The Network is honored to have Mr. Rherres Mohamed, State Secretary in charge of vocational training, Morocco, as a guest of honor.  The conference will be attended by members of the Congressional Black Caucus, the U.S. Black Chamber of Commerce, think tank experts, academics, and business leaders.

The main objective of CEO Summit 4 is to share ideas and highlight the resources that are available to help small businesses succeed both in the U.S., through the GSA and SBA, as well as in Africa, and to focus on international business opportunities.

“The summit is designed especially to expand opportunities for conducting business in Africa,” according to Mohamed El Hajjam, CEO of AV Actions Inc. and President of the Moroccan American Network.  “Specifically, we want to highlight opportunities for greater collaboration and exchange of ideas, promoting foreign investment and economic growth,” he said.

“We will be engaging in dialogue and exchange of ideas for macro-opportunities, such as investments, as well as micro-opportunities, in areas such as infrastructure and health, and creating an environment where business leaders can meet other business leaders.”

The summit will also highlight the roles of women at the leadership luncheon.

The Moroccan American Network is a network of senior individuals dedicated to creating opportunities for small business. “Through our business, media, and cultural events, we expand business networks,” said El Hajjam. “The CEO Summit is an excellent opportunity to meet others who face the same challenges and to learn from the know-how of successful business people and experts in the field.”

The conference is presented by the Moroccan American Network and sponsored by AV Actions.
