Dr. Salim M. AlMalik, Director General of the Islamic Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (ISESCO), explored with Mr. Hassan Abyaba, Moroccan Minister of Culture, Youth, Sports and Spokesperson of the Moroccan Government, ways to develop cooperation between ISESCO and the Kingdom of Morocco.
This was part of the meeting of Dr. AlMalik and ISESCO delegation with Mr. Abyaba at the headquarters of the Communication Department. The two parties agreed to inscribe a larger number of Moroccan heritage sites on the Islamic World Heritage List, which ISESCO has taken great steps to enrich as part of the Organization’s new vision to build a capacity-building system so as to safeguard and rehabilitate the cultural and civilizational heritage to contribute more strongly to the economic and social development of ISESCO Member States.
ISESCO and the Moroccan Ministry have agreed to cooperate in restoring the heritage sites in ISESCO Member States, benefit from Moroccan expertise in the field, examine the nomination of Rabat to be the Capital of Islamic Culture, and provide ISESCO with a set of masterpieces, which reflect the aesthetics of the Moroccan handicrafts, to be exhibited at ISESCO headquarters.

As for the human and social issues, ISESCO Director General and the Moroccan Minister explored the involvement of Moroccan young people in the programmes of capacity-building and combating domestic violence, particularly against children, and other programmes organized by ISESCO.
The meeting also tackled ISESCO’s Strategic Anticipation Centre, the importance of such discipline nowadays, its relation with creative industries, and anticipating professions of tomorrow in the field of culture.
The meeting was attended from the Ministry by Mr. Mustapha Eltimi, Secretary General of the Sector of Communication, and Mr. Abdelilah Eltahani, Director of Communication and Public Relations; and from ISESCO by Ms. Rahmata Almamy Mbaye, Director of Human and Social Sciences, Dr. Kais Hammami, Director of the Strategic Anticipation Centre, and Dr. Abdelilah Benarafa, Cultural Advisor to the Director General.
