Brother of Moroccan King Attends Mediterranean Summit

Posted in Property News by Colin Timms Monday July 14, 2008

The brother of King Mohammed V1, Prince Moulay Rachid attended the inaugural summit of the Union for the Mediterranean in Paris on behalf of the Moroccan Monarch.

The King’s vision has created Morocco property boom

The summit held over the weekend, was initiated by French President Nicolas Sarkozy with the goal of creating harmony and prosperity among the Mediterranean rim countries.

It is understood that the king decided not to attend the summit on Sunday because of other commitments, but he is reported to be fully behind the aims of the new union.

In total, heads of state from 43 countries around the Mediterranean participated in the summit in addition to a number of regional and international organisations.

Those attending discussed a host of issues including economic development, collective security, energy matters, environment protection, educational strategies as well as pressing political concerns.

Mr Sarkozy welcomed the presence of Greece alongside Turkey, Arab states alongside Israel and Morocco alongside Algeria: The French President said: “The alliance would not be “north against south, not Europe against the rest but united”.

Comment: The importance King Mohammed has placed on the participation of his country within the new union goes hand in hand with his vision to create a modern, dynamic nation which will be a key political and economic driving force in the region.

The ongoing surge in visitor numbers, thriving economy, and the massive investment in infrastructure to accompany the recent Moroccan property boom, are clear manifestations of the success of the king’s initiatives.
