MOROCCAN ambassador Lahcen Mahraoui held a number of high powered meetings when he visited our city on Friday.
He met the local Twilight Group to discuss the possibility of developing connections and networking between the Group’s Associate Consultants and the Kingdom of Morocco.
The visit was the result of a working friendship with former Mayor of Kilkenny, Patrick O’Neill.
Patrick and the ambassador are interested in developing strong relationship between the Kingdom and Kilkenny City,
Morocco is now the fourth largest economy in Africa.
Patrick organised time with Kilkenny’s top businessman Terry Clune, members of our county council and Connolly’s Red Mills who export to Morocco.
The Twilight Group delegation of general manager, Murty Brennan, community development officer, Frank Cody, overseas development officer, Philip Brennan and associate consultants Emmanuel Morgan and Syed Mustafis Rahman had a two-hour meeting in the Pembroke Hotel.
Discussed were tourism, twinnings, networking, education and inter-cultural projects.
