September 16, Public Luncheon on to hear Rachad Bouhlal, Ambassador of the Kingdom of Morocco,

The U.S. and Morocco: Important Allies

For more than 100 years, the U.S. and Morocco have shared a close and abiding relationship across the Atlantic Ocean, characterized by mutual respect and friendship. A testament to the special nature of U.S.-Morocco relations, the Moroccan-American Treaty of Friendship first signed in 1786 is still intact and constitutes the longest unbroken treaty in U.S. history. Today, our shared interests include the economic prosperity of both countries, pursuit of a just and lasting peace in the Middle East, promotion of regional security and cooperation, and sustainable development.

Join MIC for a public luncheon on Wednesday, September 16, to hear Rachad Bouhlal, Ambassador of the Kingdom of Morocco, discuss historic cultural and diplomatic relations between the U.S. and Morocco. Rachad Bouhlal became ambassador to the U.S. in December 2011 and was named Ambassador of the Year in 2014 by the National U.S.-Arab Chamber of Commerce in Washington, D.C. Prior to his current post, Ambassador Bouhlal served as ambassador to Germany and the EU, Belgium, and Luxembourg.
