AlMalik, Director-General of the Islamic World Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (ICESCO), received Mr. Mohamed Idrissi Meliani, Director-General of the Digital Development Agency (ADD) of the Kingdom of Morocco, and together discussed ways to promote cooperation, as part of the agreement signed between the two institutions on June 2, 2023, at GITEX Africa 2023 in Marrakech.

    During the meeting, held on Tuesday, July 18, 2023, at ICESCO Headquarters in Rabat, in the presence of officials from both institutions, Dr. AlMalik stressed ICESCO’s keenness to strengthen cooperation with the Agency in areas of common interest. He added that the Organization seeks to contribute to strengthening cooperation between the Islamic world and other countries in the field of digital transformation and promoting the exchange of expertise and successful experiences in this field, by creating e-platforms that support knowledge transfer.

    For his part, Mr. Meliani commended ICESCO’s efforts to serve the interests of its Member States, expressing the Agency’s keenness to develop partnerships with the Organization and, through it, with the rest of the Islamic world.
    The meeting discussed practical proposals for cooperation between the two parties, including the launch of an award in the field of digital development, and the strategic partnership in organizing GITEX Africa 2024, to be held in Marrakech next May. It also discussed holding a meeting of ministers in charge of technology and communications in the Islamic world, in conjunction with GITEX Africa 2024.
