The Choiseul Africa Business Forum: Promoting growth
This third edition of the conference, organized by Institut Choiseul, in partnership with the General Confederation of Moroccan Enterprises (CGEM) and the Casablanca-Settat Region is intended to bring together key business figures to discuss opportunities and major African economic issues. The event will focus on promoting the economic growth of Morocco and the Casablanca-Settat region.
