Friday, 04 September 2015

Mr. Abdellah Boussouf, Secretary General of the Council of the Moroccan Community Abroad (CCME) and Mr. Mehdi Qotbi, President of the National Museums Foundation (FNM), signed Thursday, September 3, 2015 in Rabat, a convention framework for the promotion of Moroccan culture internationally and especially towards Moroccans of the world.

This agreement comes as part of the CCME missions to facilitate the integration of overseas Moroccans in host countries and the preservation of their "cultural" identity. This engagement with the FNM is the beginning of a strong partnership in favor of the globalization of the Moroccan culture and its values ​​of tolerance and peace.

Mehdi Qotbi "Moroccan culture has taken its rightful place thanks to His Majesty the King"

In his speech, Mr. Mehdi Qotbi stressed the important role of museums in the dialogue of cultures and civilizations and welcomed the royal vision and personal efforts of His Majesty King Mohammed VI for the preservation of Moroccan culture and its promotion across generations.

The signing of the agreement with the CCME, which coincides with the third anniversary of the establishment of the FNM, according to Mr. Mehdi Qotbi is an "expression of the attachment of Moroccans to their culture and their heritage, whether in Morocco or abroad. "

Abdellah Boussouf "diversity of Moroccan culture is an essential element for peace in the world"

Mr. Abdellah Boussouf for his part underlined the importance of the values ​​of tolerance, pluralism and respect for others, inherent to Moroccan culture, especially as the world today, is manhandled by extremism and identity crises. He further stated that Morocco is the only Muslim country to have a Jewish museum.

Mr. Boussouf expressed, on the occasion of the signing of the Agreement, that the CCME’s desire is "to be accompanied by the National Museums Foundation in its mission to promote Moroccan culture": "through this agreement, the FNM will help us to make known the works and creations of world Moroccans in Morocco and abroad, and to integrate the memory of the world of Moroccans in the collective national memory. This is the guarantee of a permanent link between Moroccans in Morocco and abroad. "
