IPRA accord with the Morocco Public Diplomacy Center


(Comments)

IPRA, the International Public Relations Association, has signed a partnership agreement with the Morocco Public Diplomacy Center. Under the agreement, inter alia, the organisations will exchange information, share publications and help promote the ethical development of the PR profession.

 

“The power of a state on the international scene is no longer measured solely by the strength of its economy, its position in multilateral institutions, nor its political, military and strategic strength.  That power also rests on an ability to project its values, knowledge and culture on other societies,” said Center President Asmaa Benslimane.

 

We're very happy to extend a warm marhaba to the members of the Morocco Public Diplomacy Center. Morocco is becoming a real African business and diplomatic hub for the whole continent and public relations and public diplomacy will play an increasingly important role. I am already looking forward to working closely with the founding president Asmaa Benslimane," comments IPRA President Philippe Borremans.
