Under the agreement, inter alia, the organisations will exchange materials such as IPRA’s Thought Leadership essays and know-how to help with the development of the PR profession.
“After expanding our Board presence in North Africa it is fitting to complete an agreement with Morocco. These agreements add to our extending network of co-operation with PR groups around the world,” explains IPRA President Bart de Vries. “Under these we hope to provide help where it is needed and to expand IPRA’s Golden World Awards programme to new areas of PR practice.”
Reacting to the agreement, Hicham Lamrani, General Secretary comments: “We are pleased to expand our network and join a prestigious association such as IPRA. Our goal is to bring a significant added value to communication practices in Morocco and more widely in Africa.”
