IGD President Dr. Mima S. Nedelcovych lauded on July 30, the leadership of His Majesty King Mohammed VI for his vision and strategy in expanding Morocco’s engagement and fostering regional growth on the African continent on Throne Day.

Throne Day, which is observed annually on July 30, commemorates the day of the King’s accession to the throne.

Nedelcovych was interviewed by MAP, the Moroccan News Agency, where he also hailed Morocco for its return to the African Union and the “long-awaited accession of the Kingdom to the bosom of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS).”


“The accession of Morocco to ECOWAS will have a beneficial impact likely to generate an economic boom within this regional grouping thanks to the added value that Morocco will bring from the strength of its economy and its industrial sector,” said Nedelcovych, pointing out that Morocco’s projection force in the continent is also driven by the banking, insurance, agro-industrial sectors and by the Office Chérifien des Phosphates (OCP) , as well as by operators in the real estate and renewable energy sectors.


Private sector leaders from Morocco are an active part of IGD’s Frontier Leader Network. IGD’s ​Advisor to the President​ Ilham Hanem Farid is based in Casablanca, Morocco. Nedelcovych noted that discussions are currently underway to host an IGD forum in Morocco.
