Media Advisory/Photo Opportunity: Moroccan Ambassador Discusses Free Trade During Colorado State Visit March 22


Moroccan Ambassador Aziz Mekouar will talk about the recently signed free-trade agreement between the United States and Morocco during a March 22 visit with Colorado State University’s marketing students in the College of Business. The students are researching whether Moroccan specialty food producers should enter the U.S. grocery market. His talk on "Bi-lateral Trade Relations and Implications of the Free Trade Agreement" is part of a multi-city tour sponsored and organized by the Moroccan-American Trade & Investment Council to inform U.S. businesses about the free-trade agreement, encourage investment and increase trade.


Mekouar will speak from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. Wednesday, March 22, in Ammons Hall near the corner of Laurel and Meldrum streets on the Colorado State campus in Fort Collins. The talk is free and open to the public.


During his visit to Fort Collins, Mekouar will meet with Colorado State students who are competing in an international competition sponsored by EdVenture Partners on behalf of the Moroccan-American Trade and Investment Council. The BK410 Marketing Research class is competing with schools such as the University of Texas, the University of Illinois and Simon Fraser University in Canada on the Brand Morocco Research Program.
